A police K-9 unit was nearby when the call came out and reported two people running from the back of the building. A 16-year-old male was quickly taken into custody near the store.
Officers from Shawnee, Merriam, and Lake Quivira set up a perimeter around the area to search for the second suspect. The perimeter was held for about an hour as officers searched for the second suspect.
