Tulsa police have arrested a man they say led them on a chase, broke into an apartment and hid in the bedroom with a gun.

Officers said they were on a traffic stop when they heard 8-10 gunshots coming from the Town Square Apartments in the 1600 block of East Young Street.

When officers went to the apartments to investigate, a security guard indicated the shots came from the back of the complex. As they were driving through, they noticed Andre Thomas, 23, running away.

A chase led officers to an apartment, which the man broke into and attempted to hide, according to police.

A semi-automatic gun was found in the bedroom, police said.

Thomas was booked into jail on complaints of first-degree burglary and possession of firearm and is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
