TYLER, June 13, 2014—UPDATE: Three burglars are now in the custody of Smith County Sheriff's Office Deputies after a brief pursuit Thursday morning.

Smith County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a burglary in progress in the 18000 block of County Road 234. An uncle of the homeowner, who also lives in the same neighborhood, was driving by and saw a vehicle that shouldn’t have been there, parked at the back of the residence.

The uncle entered the front door of the residence, which is where the burglars gained entry, and saw three men exit the back of the home. The suspects got into their vehicle and began to flee. The uncle then used a handgun to fire several shots at the suspects’ 2004 gold Chevrolet Impala.
