ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - Two people from Madill are behind bars after a burglary in Madill turned into a road rage shootout in Ardmore Monday afternoon.
Around 10:40 a.m. Monday, Madill police responded to a call at the South Park Duplexes on 8th Avenue where a neighbor saw 19-year-old Charles Autrey and 20-year-old Jacquline Casas climbing through a window.
Donny Raley with Madill Police Dept. said the neighbor knew Aturey and Casas were not supposed to be at the apartment.
"She first ran them out of the apartment and called 911," Raley said.
Madill police said the pair got away with a handgun, jewelry, and about $500.
The two men who live in the apartment were made aware their things had been taken.
Capt. Keith Ingle with Ardmore Police Dept. said a lookout for the suspects' vehicle went out to other law enforcement agencies
"The victims in that burglary just happened to see the suspects leaving the Oakland area and decided to follow them and contact law enforcement," Ingle said.
They chased them to Lake Murray State Park.
Somewhere between there and I-3, the suspects realized they were being followed.
Ardmore police said near 12th Avenue and Holiday Drive, the cars got very close to each other and someone in the suspects' car pointed a gun at the victims' vehicle.
"They ducked down but then they heard two loud pops, thinking they were getting shot at," Ingle said. "One of the subjects inside feared for his life and jumped out and shot one round back into their tire. Not trying to kill anyone or hurt them, just letting them know he had a gun too and keep him there until law enforcement could get to them."
But Autrey and Casas kept driving all the way to about Broadway and Commerce before their tire blew out, running over a street sign and coming to a stop near 3rd Avenue SW.
Autrey faces charges of burglary, possession of stolen property and possession of a fire arm after a felony conviction.
Casas faces charges of burglary and possession of stolen property.
The victims do not face any charges at this time for shooting the suspect vehicle.
Madill police said they are logging the stolen items as evidence before returning them to their owners.
