TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police say they've caught a suspected serial robber after a shooting Thursday evening at a Tulsa liquor store.

Police were called to the store near 12th and Memorial just before 6:30 Thursday for reports of a robbery and a shooting.  They say the robbery happened at Forest Acres Liquor store.

Right now, police are working to piece together the moments that led up to the shooting.

"Our work is really just getting started we got determine who this guy is and we've got to piece together what exactly happened tonight," said Tulsa Police Sergeant Brandon Watkins. 

Police said the owner shot a man multiple times after she said he tried to rob her business. 

Police said the would-be robber assaulted the owner. She was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

"She was just in a fight for her life there really just a few minutes ago. She is going to get some further treatment from another hospital," Watkins said. 

Watkins said police believe the man is connected to a series of robberies in the Tulsa area. 

"We were briefing on this tonight we've been running a task force we've been out every night and we had pretty well narrowed it down to our suspect. Unfortunately, we didn't get to him in time," Watkins said. 

The robber took off after the shooting but was found at a nearby hospital in critical condition.

The store owner was treated for her injuries by EMSA. 

Police have not released the name of the man who as of late Thursday was still alive but in an induced coma.
