Three in Custody Following Morning Robbery

LAWTON, Okla._

 Three people were taken into custody Saturday afternoon following an early morning robbery. Police were called to a possible robbery of a business around 10 a.m. at Northwest 67th and Cache Road.

A Game King employee told police he was unlocking the store's front door to open for business when two black men, one armed with a gun, forced their way in and demanded several items. 

The suspected getaway car was found at an apartment complex near the robbery location. Police knocked on the apartment's front door, where the suspects were believed to be inside. A woman answered the door and told police no one else was in there. After further questioning police learned the men were holing up in the apartment. 

After several hours, LPD'S tactical team kicked in the apartment's front door. Many residents said they heard a loud explosion. Police said it was caused by a "flash bang" tool police use to create a diversion.

The two suspects were found inside, police also recovered a gun in the apartment. As of Saturday evening police had not said if the gun found was the same gun used in the robbery where several gaming systems were stolen.

The identities of the three individuals were not released.
