OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities say a would-be robber who fled an Oklahoma City church after the pastor shot at him has been arrested.

Police say the pastor caught the suspect trying to rob the Church of the Living God on the city’s northeast side on Wednesday and fired a shot at him.

The suspect ran away after the pastor fired and was later taken into custody after neighbors called police when they saw the suspect hiding on their property.

No injuries have been reported and authorities have not identified the suspect.
