Tulsa Police are looking for two men who robbed a man and shot him at the Executive Villa Apartments in the 3200 block of South Winston early Friday.

Officers said one of the men was armed with a handgun. The victim told police the pair banged on his door just after 2 a.m. As he opened the door, the men kicked it in.

Police said the victim told the two men he had no money. While one held the victim at gunpoint, the other man ransacked the apartment. The men took the victim's wallet and shot him in the upper leg then then ran away.

Officers said the only description of the two men is they were both young black males wearing hooded sweatshirts.

"It probably would have been best to talk to through the door, especially if you don't recognize them. If they've got hoods on, it should be something you should pick up as odd or strange," said Tulsa Police Cpl. Jerrod Hart.

EMSA took the victim to the hospital. Police say he's expected to be okay.

Call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS if you have information about the robbery and shooting.
