NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police arrested two teens in connection to an early morning break-in attempt Wednesday at a home on Overton Lea Road in Oak Hill.

A female homeowner reported the attempted break-in by three males around 6:30 a.m., after an airsoft gun pellet punctured the glass in her home's back door. 

After seeing the homeowner, the three males did not enter the home and fled the scene.

The incident brought about a massive ground and air response by Metro police, including a lockdown of nearby Overton High School, Father Ryan High School, Franklin Road Academy and Robertson Road Academy.

A 17-year-old suspect was found within an hour hiding in a sunroom closet off Tyne Boulevard, not too far from the Overton Lea Road home.

According to a neighbor, the two other males, believed to be the suspects, asked to use a phone shortly after the break-in attempt.

They reportedly called a taxi and drove away heading south.

Investigators are working to identify the taxi company, as well as the pick-up and drop-off times and locations.

A four-door silver sedan was found near brush at the edge of the Overton Lea Road property.

Metro police believe the three males attempted to hide the vehicle while they approached the house, but were forced to abandon it after the failed break-in.

Spokesperson Don Aaron told Nashville's News 2 the vehicle was reported stolen in July.  The plates were also stolen.

The second suspect, also 17, was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon inside a residence located on Edge Moor Drive in the Priest Lake area.

Police recovered clothing worn by the suspect, along with two guns.

The third suspect, a male Latino, remains at large.  No additional information on his identity was released.

It is also unknown if the trio have been involved in other break-ins.
