Around 12:45 a.m. on Thursday, police were dispatched to West Latimer Court near Union, on the northwest edge of the Tulsa Country Club.

Five people were at the home at the time when someone in a car driving by opened fire.

Two bullets hit the house. No one was hurt and police don't have any leads on a suspect.

An hour later and a half mile away at Westport on the River Apartments, police say someone shot at a security guard.

He saw someone running away from the scene.
