Tulsa Police officers are searching for a fourth person in connection with two robberies that led to a chase and a shooting. Officers dispatched K9 units as well as their helicopter to search for the last suspect.

According to police, the first robbery happened just after 8 p.m. Wednesday near 11th Street and Mingo when a man mowing his yard was robbed of $12 and his debit card. 

A second robbery happened 45 minutes later in South Tulsa. According to police, photos gave them a good description of the suspect vehicle, which officers spotted near 11th Street and Yale.

After a short chase, police said the car crashed into a fence near 12th and Fulton. Officers said four people got out of the car and ran. Police said the suspects went into a man’s backyard, and the homeowner shot one person in the stomach, telling officers he felt threatened.

The man who was shot was taken to the hospital for treatment and a third person was taken into custody. Officers are looking for a fourth person, who they said may be a female.

One of the suspects was taken to a hospital while the other two remain in custody. 

Police are questioning the homeowner about the shooting to determine if he broke any laws.
