A man was shot during a home invasion early Saturday morning in an east Tulsa apartment complex, Tulsa police said.
Four men and one woman were in an apartment at Willowbend Appartments in the 3000 block of south 101st East Avenue between 12:40 and 1 a.m. when two of the men left to go to a store, said Sgt. Mike Williams with the Tulsa Police Department. About five minutes later there was knock on the door, and those still at the apartment opened the door believing it was the two men returning.
The witnesses said a black male, 6 feet tall, weighing about 150 pounds and dressed in all black with a black handkerchief across his face entered the apartment with a semiautomatic gun and demanded money. One of the men in the apartment dropped money on the floor, and when the suspected robber when to pick it up, the other two men tried to disarm him, Williams said.
A struggle followed, and the suspect shot one of the men in the stomach. The two men who had gone to the store returned and were also robbed, Williams said.
The suspect also cut off the woman’s underwear, and she received minor cuts.
The victim was taken to St. Francis Hospital and is in stable condition. His injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening, Williams said.
