OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma City Police say a would-be robber got a taste of his own medicine this morning when he was chased at gunpoint out of a pharmacy he was trying to rob.

Officers say the man walked into the pharmacy in south Oklahoma City about 9 AM Thursday, pointed a gun at the owner and demanded pain killers.

The owner then pulled a gun of his own and chased the gunman from the store. A retired Oklahoma City police officer then began chasing the suspect.

Police later arrested Michael Ward and another man whose name wasn't immediately released.
