Tulsa Police said two people were shot after a landlord tried to collect rent near 51st and Yale Thursday.

Officers were called to the scene at 50th and Hudson just before noon. Police said a 15-year-old was shot in the leg and a 24-year-old was shot in the hand. 

According to police, a struggle occurred, and at least two guns were produced. 

Police said the landlord had an asthma attack and needed medical attention. No arrests have been made at the time. 

Neighbors said they could hear people screaming before the shooting. 

Debi Bell, who works nearby, said she heard a popping noise and called police.

"I could just hear screaming and yelling, and one kid was down on the ground," she said.

Sgt. Scott Anderson, Tulsa Police, said neither of the injuries were serious.

"It appears from the gun casings that there's two different calibers of bullet which leads us to believe that there were at least two different weapons involved," Anderson said.

Police are talking to all three people involved.
