Tulsa Police are searching for three men who burst into a Tulsa auto parts store over the noon-hour and opened fire.

Officers say the men were dressed in all black and wearing ski masks when they went into the O'Reilly Auto Parts at 47th and North Peoria.

Police say they fired two "warning" shots into the ceiling and demanded cash. When they got the money, they ran off.

"Kind of brazen," said Sergeant Ali Maurer with the Tulsa Police Department. "It's lunch time - 12 o'clock - two fast food restaurants right across the street."

There were only employees in the store at the time, and they were not hurt. Nearby McLain High School was put on lockdown during a search for the men.

If you have information that could help police, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
