(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) An attempted burglary left three people arrested on Wednesday after a fight broke out near 30th and Locust.

Police said two men tried to break into a garage, when a man confronted the two. The three men got into a scuffle where it moved to 30th and Messanie.

Police were called after a gun was pulled by the man that confronted the two burglars.

Investigators first believed the handgun was authentic, but after looking further, discovered it was a toy pellet gun.

Nobody was shot.

Two men were arrested on burglary charges, while the third was arrested for pulling the weapon.
