Authorities say three people are dead and a fourth is critically injured after a police chase and crash following a gun shop burglary in southwestern Michigan.

The Berrien County sheriff's office says a break-in was reported early Sunday at the Black Arsenal Gun Store. Lincoln Township police determined several guns were missing. A witness described an SUV leaving the scene, and a deputy spotted it on Interstate 94.

Authorities say the deputy stopped the SUV, but it sped off and exited the freeway before crashing into a tree in Royalton Township.

Police say 20-year-old driver Jamahri Jayshaun Fuller died along with 17-year-old Davion Marquez Patton and 17-year-old Allan Trevon-James Velox. A 17-year-old was hospitalized. All were from Benton Harbor.

Police found all eight stolen guns at the crash scene.

    Apparently their parents never taught them -- Do not steal.

    And nothing of value was lost.. Except maybe the tree. I hope it survives.

    There still one alive. Make him pay for the tree.

    Well, at least this situation resolved itself.

    Now it's time to look at that gun store's safety precautions. Clearly someone didn't want to put the time or money into protecting their property well enough, with proper storage for their weapons. I mean, come on! If you're dealing in weaponry, then it is your responsibility as the owner of those weapons to secure them properly--particularly when you have a collection of this level for sale, and everyone who walks into your store knows what you're offering.
