    FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - An attempted burglary at a high-end gun range turned into a wild pursuit.

    Police say tried to break into a gun range in Forsyth County but didn't know a deputy was in the other side of the parking lot.

    According to authorities, one of the suspects used a brick to break into the store but it set the alarm off. When they took off, the deputy went after them.

    Chris Sterling, the general manager of Johns Creek Indoor Gun Range in Suwanee, walked us through the surveillance video.

    Sterling told Channel 2's Michael Seiden the two suspects stole a van from a neighboring church then led authorities on a wild pursuit. It eventually came to an end after the suspects wrecked the stolen van.

    “One of the suspects had fled to an abandoned house and had actually called for a rideshare, to give them a ride since they had wrecked the van," Sterling said. "When the Uber driver pulled up to the roadblock that’s when they were able to get the address."

    Deputies arrested and charged 18-year-old Devonte Minto of Lithonia but his alleged partner in crime remains on the run.

    "This should send a message not to do this stuff in Forsyth," Sterling said.
