MAYPEARL (March 21, 2013)--Two heavily armed Oklahoma are dead evidently after trying to break into a North Texas home, authorities said Thursday.
Pottawatomie County, Ok.a., Undersheriff J.T. Palmer said Kenneth Chaffin, 17, and Dillon King, 18, of Bethel Acres, Okla., appeared to have died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds in Maypearl.
Pottawatomie County sheriff's officials issued a national alert early Wednesday advising that Chaffin had stolen a pickup and run away from home Monday with 17 guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition and prescription medications.
Later that day, sheriff's officials in Ellis County, some 240 miles south of Bethel Acres, said a man exchanged fire with two teenage boys who were trying to break into his home in Maypearl.
Palmer says those teens were Chaffin and King.
No one else was hurt.
