Police are looking for two suspects they believe are connected to two armed east Tulsa robberies late Monday.

Officers said at about 9:45 a.m. they were called to a shots fired-attempted robbery of a convenience store in the 9400 block of East 31st Street.  

The store's clerk told police two men entered the store and fired two shots at the front counter.  Police say the clerk who ducked behind a shelf wasn't injured.  Both suspects then ran out of the store.

Less than an hour later, police were sent another convenience store in the 9900 block of East 21st Street in reference to a stabbing.  Officers said a robbery victim had gone to the store to call 911 after he was held up at gunpoint then stabbed in the chest by two men outside the Shoreline Apartments in the 2300 block of South 96th East Avenue.

Police said the stab wound didn't appear to be life threatening.

Officers said the description of the two suspects in this robbery were similar to attempted convenience store robbery on East 31st Street.
