Authorities say two heavily armed Oklahoma teens have been killed while apparently trying to break into a North Texas home.

Pottawatomie County Undersheriff J.T. Palmer said Thursday that 17-year-old Kenneth Chaffin and 18-year-old Dillon King, of Bethel Acres, Okla., appeared to have died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds in Maypearl, Texas.

Pottawatomie County sheriff's officials issued a national alert early Wednesday saying Chaffin had stolen a pickup and run away from home Monday with 17 guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition and prescription medications.

Later that day, sheriff's officials in Ellis County, Texas, some 240 miles south of Bethel Acres, said a woman exchanged fire with two teenage boys who were trying to break into her Maypearl home. Palmer says those teens were Chaffin and King.

No one else was hurt.
