TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police are looking for a group of teens involved in an armed robbery late Tuesday night. 

The robbery happened at 11:11 p.m. at the Minute Mart on 21st Street near Garnett. 

Officers say a Minute Mart employee was getting ready to lock up when 4-5 teens entered the store.

The clerk told police, two of the suspects walked to the beer cooler.  One suspect, described as wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, produced a shotgun and pointed it the clerk.

That suspect then began beating the victim about the head and shoulders with the shotgun.

The clerk says all the suspects left in a dark-colored Honda Civic south on South 109th East Avenue.  A few minutes later, Tulsa Police got a report of a car fire about a block from the convenience store.  That car was the Honda Civic.

Police say all of the suspects were described as being 17-19 years of age.
