Two people are in jail following an armed robbery and shooting Thursday night at a home in the 1600 block of North Boston.  

Officers say a man called 911 at 11 p.m. after finding his next door neighbor lying on the floor bleeding from a gunshot wound. EMSA took the 52-year-old man to the hospital. Police say he is expected to survive.

A woman in the home told police she didn't hear anything until the gunshot.

Another witness told police several people left the home in a white Nissan at about the time of the shooting.

Police stopped the Nissan at Apache and Lewis a short time later and took Tylyshia Mason, 21, and Michael Sheppard, 23, in for questioning. 

According to a police report, the victim told officers he was shot after two men and one woman demanded money and he refused. 

Tulsa Police booked Mason and Sheppard into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of robbery with a dangerous weapon. Bond for each was set at $50,000.   

Police are still looking for the second man, described as 30 to 35 years old, 6 foot tall and 180 pounds. 

If anyone has information about the shooting they are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or text 918TIP to "Crimes."
