GASTON COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A home in Mount Holly was broken into Tuesday night.

The residents of the home say the suspects forced their way into the house and stole cash, among other items.

The suspects were armed and one of them shot at the ceiling of the home, according to the victims.

Two of the victims said  they knew the suspects and that is was not a random break in.

When officers arrived at the home on Costner Street they saw a person run from the house and a vehicle leave with no lights on.

The officers eventually stopped the vehicle and chased down the suspects on foot.

Octavious Rikeem Deshay White, DeAngelo Oston Rice and Williams Joel Porter III were arrested and taken to the Gaston County Jail.

This is an ongoing investigation.
