Tulsa Police are investigating after a father and son were shot at a Tulsa mobile home park. Authorities believe it happened during a robbery in the 1200 block of South 107th East Avenue, southeast of 11th Street and Highway 169.

Police say when they responded to the area just after 3:30 a.m. Saturday, they found the victims lying in the driveway in front of their mobile home. An officer was able to talk to the wounded men. The son said he was returning home from work when he was approached by two men who tried to rob him, records show.

The father heard the son outside arguing and came outside. Both men were shot an unknown number of times.

Police are looking for two men wearing dark hoodies and khaki pants, armed with a gun.

"Basically what they told us, it was a robbery at the time, and then they were shot," said Sergeant Jillian Phippen, Tulsa Police.

It was dark and rainy, and police say the victims didn't get a good look at the shooters. 

The father and son were both taken to the hospital in unknown condition.
