Authorities say the pickup truck a 17-year-old Oklahoma boy stole from his parents' home along with guns and ammunition has been found at a deadly robbery scene in Texas.
The Ellis County Sheriff's Office in North Texas says two male suspects are dead after the failed home robbery. Their names haven't been released.
A sheriff's office statement says a man living at the house near the town of Maypearl in rural Ellis County exchanged gunshots with the suspects Wednesday. His wife had called him home after seeing someone with a gun outside their window.
The sheriff's office says the suspects ran toward a field and were later found dead from what appeared to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds. One was found in the field and the other in the stolen pickup.
