ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Odessa police say two teens are behind bars Monday after they allegedly forced open the front door of a home and pointed a handgun at the resident.
Officers were sent out to the 1300 block of North Tom Green Ave. for a suspected burglary in progress.
The man residing at the house told officer that after forcing open the door and pointing a gun at him, the suspects fled northbound on Tom Green Ave while firing their handguns.

Both were arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
Viscaino was also charged with tampering with an identification number because the serial number on his gun had been scraped off.
