Mississippi police were searching Friday morning for three suspects who burglarized a gun store.

The men reportedly broke into the 2A Armaments gun store in New Albany, Mississippi, and took a number of guns. Police received a call about the robbery at approximately 3 a.m. and responded.

A witness reportedly gave police a description of their vehicle, which was spotted and a pursuit began.

Law enforcement officers chased the suspects into Marshall County before officers were able to disable the vehicle by flattening the tires.

Three black male suspects jumped out of the vehicle and fled, evading officers.

Police were pursuing them Monday morning but had not located them yet. They were searching in the Holly Springs area.
