Shots Fired gun store 'hit hard' in burglary

Shots Fired, a gun store on Washington Street in Covington, was burglarized early Monday morning.

Approximately 20-30 guns were taken from the store, which was “hit hard” according to Covington Police Capt. Ken Malcom.

Malcom said four black males, possibly in a silver Honda, rammed the side door.

"They got the door opened, and four men ran inside and started grabbing guns," Covington Police Capt. Craig Treadwell said. "They broke a couple of coutners open and took mostly hand guns and definetly a couple of long guns." 

According to Treadwell, the suspects where in the store and gun range for 2 minutes, 40 seconds. Police who were nearby, arrived 20 seconds after dispatch, which recieved a call from Shots Fired's alarm company, placed the call.

Shots Fired offers training and a shooting range, along with many different types of firearms and ammunition for sale. The store, located on 8175 Washington Street, will remain closed Monday and reopen Tuesday.
