A pickup stolen by an Oklahoma teen has turned up at the scene of an attempted robbery in Texas which erupted into a shootout and apparent double suicide.
The story begins Monday in Bethel Acres, Oklahoma, when 17-year-old named Kenneth Chaffin reportedly stole his parents' 1991 Ford Ranger pickup truck, along with nine handguns, six rifles, two shotguns, a couple thousand rounds of ammunition, and prescription drugs.
Wednesday, deputies in Ellis County, Texas, south of Dallas, found that pickup, with a dead body inside, after an attempted home invasion robbery turned into a shootout.
They believe the man committed suicide.
In a field nearby, the body of another young man, wounded multiple times but apparently dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The pair had apparently tried to get into the rural home, but the woman inside called her husband, who was nearby and rushed home to grab a gun.
He exchanged fire with the suspects, hitting one and getting injured in the process.
He was reportedly treated and released at the scene.
Deputies have now identified the dead as Chaffin and Dillon King, 18.
They have not released any information about King, nor how the two may have known one another.
