Just before 5 A.M. Wednesday morning, Jim Sharrah, owner of Frontier Gun shop at 3156 E Grant Rd was face to face with two men who broke into his shop. 

Sharrah says, he received a phone call from his alarm company that there was reportedly glass breakage and forced entry. He told KGUN9 News Reporter, Jennifer Martinez that when he arrived at his shop he saw "two men loading guns from his gun shop into the U-HAUL truck."

"My doors were all tore up and they were in the back of the van and I walked up to the van and we got into a little scuffle," says Sharrah. 

Adding, "I went down to the ground and he went down to the ground. Then, he popped back up and we played tag around the van I was trying to get to him." 

According to Tucson Police Department, The two men ran off and left the guns and the U-HAUL truck behind. 

Sharrah tells KGUN9 they attempted to take a barrage of shotguns, rifles and handguns. "They beat the guns up because they just threw them in the back of the van."
