At least four homes were hit with gunfire overnight, Tulsa police say. The homes range from north Tulsa to Midtown to south Tulsa to east Tulsa.

Just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday, a woman told police someone fired shots into her home in the 1500 block of East 51st Place North. The woman said she was inside with five other people when she heard gunshots.

Police said three rounds entered her home. No one was injured.

Officers said the same home was been targeted by gunfire at least three other times in recent months.

Earlier, about 1 a.m., officers responded to another shots fired call in the 3600 block of South 109th East Avenue. Upon arrival, officers discovered three bullets hit the home. At the time of the incident, the house was occupied by four adults and three teenagers. No one was injured.

There are no known suspects in that shooting.

Gunfire went off again around 3:30 a.m. in the courtyard of St. Thomas Square Apartments, near 61st and Peoria.

Police say a couple were arguing outside an apartment. The girlfriend went inside, and when she shut the door, police say several shots were fired into her apartment.

They believe it was the boyfriend who pulled the trigger and they still are looking for him. TPD says three other adults were inside the residence at the time. No one was injured, but they weren't very cooperative, according to officers.

Police say they do have leads that they're investigating.

Another shooting also took place at Admiral and Memorial overnight. The residents think they are being targeted because it is the second time it has happened recently in the overnight hours.

Several bullets hit the home and vehicles as a vehicle drove by and fired shots, the residents say. Six people were inside at the time of the shooting, and a man inside ran out after the shooters. He told police someone in the vehicle turned to shoot at him and he ran back inside.

Witnesses said there were up to five people in the vehicle.

Tulsa police say the four shootings don't appear to be connected at this time, but the investigation is ongoing.
