Police in Illinois are searching for four suspects who rammed a stolen vehicle into a gun range to gain entry, then proceeded to steal more than 20 firearms.
It happened around 3 a.m. Monday, according to FOX 32 Chicago. Oak Forest police responded to an alarm call at the Eagle Gun Range.
Surveillance video shows the thieves wearing stocking caps and masks inside the facility as they steal approximately 23 guns, officials said.
“Concerning, yes,” customer Giovanni Magana told WLS. “They’re gonna have a bunch of guys running around shooting, selling guns under the table, so it’s scary, you know?”
