A Tulsa woman has been arrested in connection with a botched robbery attempt that led to two men being shot last week outside a Sapulpa motel.
Brittany Sue Carter, 18, was booked into the Tulsa Jail early Saturday on attempted robbery with a weapon and conspiracy to commit a felony complaints, arrest records show.
Police also have named 21-year-old Eric Courtaway as a person of interest in the robbery.
Carter and three men are accused of trying to hold up a 28-year-old man Friday at the Economy Inn at 5609 W. Skelly Drive, Sapulpa Police Capt. Bret Bowling said.
The man, who is licensed to carry a handgun, shot two of the assailants in the legs, Bowling said.
He is not expected to be charged, Bowling said.
The two shooting victims, whose names have not been released, were taken to the Oklahoma State University Medical Center in Tulsa by Carter and another person believed to have been involved in the attempted robbery, police said.
The preliminary investigation revealed the 28-year-old man was invited to a motel by a woman he had recently met and that when he entered the room, he was approached by three men with guns, police said.
The injured men gave investigators conflicting accounts of how they were shot, Bowling said.
Bowling said the shooting victims have yet to be released from the hospital.
