MOORE, Okla. -- Police have arrested three teenagers in connection with the shooting of a Moore man Saturday afternoon.

According to authorities, 18-year-old Jaime Bradley and 16-year-old James Conway were involved in an argument at the victim's house late Saturday morning. About an hour later, the two men returned with 17-year-old Stephan Beceria armed with a gun.

Sgt. Todd Strickland of the Moore Police Department said Beceria owns the gun and he shot the victim.

The three men have been arrested on complaints of shooting with intent to kill. Due to the nature of the crime, Beceria and Conway, who are minors, could be charged as adults.

Neighbors are shocked and said this part of Moore is seen as a safe place to live.

"Its kinda scary to come out and see that there is all kinds of police and TV crews up and down the street. You wouldn't think that would happen in a little place like this," neighbor Dominique Schultz said.

Police were able to locate one of the suspect's cars with the help of witnesses.

After a quick search, police found one of the three men who is allegedly involved in the shooting. Police said they found Beceria in a closet and the gun used in the incident in the same bedroom in Bradley's home.

The victim was taken by helicopter to an area hospital, but authorities expect he will recover from his injuries.

The victim's name has not been released.
