St. Louis (KSDK) - Three men have been charged for two burglaries in south St. Louis.

Jalen Simms and Devion Gordon, both 17-years-old, have each been charged with one count of first-degree burglary, one count of second-degree burglary, theft under $500, felony resisting, unlawful use of a weapon, and possession of a defaced firearm.

Juan Williams, 21, has been charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree burglary, theft under $500, and felony resisting.

Police say both burglaries happened Wednesday morning.

The first burglary happened at 10:42 a.m. in the 5600 block of Bischoff when police say a 92-year-old woman woke up to noises in her basement and found the suspects inside her home.

Police say one of the suspects showed a weapon to the victim before running from the scene.

A neighbor saw the suspects get into a black Chevy Impala and was able to give police the license plate number.

The second burglary happened 13 minutes later in the 1300 block of Louisville.

The 31-year-old victim was told an alarm was sounding at his home. When he returned he discovered his flat screen television had been stolen.

At 11:30 a.m. police saw the Chevy Impala identified by the neighbor of the first victim and stopped it near Lillian and Mimika.

Four men got out of the vehicle and ran from police.

Officers yelled at one of the suspects repeatedly to drop his weapon, but instead the suspect pointed it at officers.

Police fired multiple times at the suspect, who then dropped his weapon and surrendered.

No one was injured in the shooting.

Two other men were arrested, and the fourth man escaped.

Three handguns and the flat screen television from the second burglary were recovered.

Simms is held on a $60,000 cash-only bond, Gordon is held on a $45,000 cash-only bond, and Williams is held on a $30,000 cash-only bond.
