A man was shot in his home early Sunday morning after suspects forced their way into a home in the 13000 block of East 16th Place, police said.
Tulsa Police Sgt. Mark Mears said police responded to the call at about 5 a.m. at the Plaza Hills apartment complex, where three residents told police an unknown number of men tried to break in.
Some of the shots fired were return fire from the residents, Mears said.
One of the residents was shot in the elbow during the exchange of gunfire, police report.
Later in the morning, police came into contact with a man who was dropped off at Hillcrest Medical Center with a gunshot injury.
Police reported the man was non-cooperative, so police do not know if he was involved, Mears said.
Anyone with information about the robbery and shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS (2677).
