TAMPA - There's a giant hole in the wall, and Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies say burglars stole 42 guns from a gun shop overnight Wednesday.

Officers are investigating the burglary at Shooting Sports at 7811 N Dale Mabry Hwy.

Deputies say it appears that either a sledge hammer or power tools were used to make that hole in the cement block wall.

All the stolen guns were handguns.

Surveillance video shows three people, wearing hooded sweatshirts and bandanas, enter the building and swipe guns from the glass containers before fleeing. The entire burglary appears to have taken about 60 seconds.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies sent deputies to other area gun shops, including Shooters World (116 E Fletcher Ave) and Florida Firearms Academy (13317 W Hillsborough Ave), to check to make sure there weren't other break-ins, and alerted Tampa Police to monitor gun shops in Tampa.
