A man was shot three times after he awoke to find masked robbers in his house early Friday, Tulsa police said.
He was one of seven men at the house in the 700 block of North Hudson Avenue about 4 a.m. when the two robbers approached one of the men, who was smoking outside, police said.
The robbers asked for a cigarette, smoked it, and then pulled a gun and forced the man inside, police said.
As the robbers took money, wallets and cell phones from the house, the man awakened by the commotion walked from a bedroom, startled the robbers and was shot in the arm, chest and upper leg, police said.
He was taken to St. John Medical Center with injures that were not considered life-threatening.
The two robbers ran from the house and fled in a vehicle they had parked on a nearby street, police said.
They were described as in their early 20s and had bandanas covering their faces, police said.
Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or tulsaworld.com/crimestoppers.
