TULSA - Tulsa police say a teen attempted to rob a convenience store armed with a BB gun around 9 p.m. Saturday.
Officials say the 17-year-old suspect entered the Stop & Save near 12th Street and Galveston Avenue, pulled out a pistol and demanded money from the clerk.
The clerk told police that he heard the suspect pull the trigger on the gun as the clerk was getting the money, but the gun did not discharge. He then pulled out his own BB gun as the suspect attempted to leave the store.
Police say the suspect fled to the back of the store when he realized the clerk had engaged the electric lock.
Police arrived on the scene and took the suspect into custody and found the suspect's weapon was also a BB gun. He was booked into the Tulsa County Jail for attempted robbery with a firearm, but his name has not been released.
