TULSA, Oklahoma -

Five men with guns kicked in the front door of an East Tulsa home early Saturday morning. Tulsa Police say it happened at about 1 a.m. in the 2500 block of South 96th East Avenue.

Officers say all five men were armed with pistols or revolvers. Corporal R.W. Solomon said it doesn't appear the family was targeted for any particular reason.

"They were in the process of going to bed," Solomon said. "There was a couple of adults downstairs, and there was several children upstairs at the time of the occurrence."

The men confronted the adults on the first floor of the home then went upstairs where children were sleeping. Everyone was told to get on the floor, police say.

The men demanded money, but the residents didn't have cash, according to police. The men left with electronics, dropping a TV and some gaming equipment outside the home.

Tulsa Police searched for the armed robbers with K-9 patrols and the Police 1 helicopter but were unsuccessful.

Police say the victims were shaken up but unharmed.

The homeowner said there was a shot fired during the robbery, but police had not found a shell casing or bullet hole early in the investigation.

If you can help police investigate this robbery, call 918-596-COPS.
