TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- A Tulsa man is in critical condition after he was shot in the head during what Tulsa Police are saying was a home invasion.

The incident occurred at 11:15 p.m. Thursday in the 2100 block of East Tecumseh.

Tulsa Police say three men forced their way through a rear door of the home and shot one resident inside the home.

They then forced two other people in the home to get into their car and then left the scene. About a mile away, those two residents were pushed out of the car.

Police say it appears those two men were roughed up by the suspects, before being dumped.

"The subject had shown up at a convenience store saying that he had been pistol whipped and his friend had been shot at a nearby residence that lead us to the area of 2125 East Tecumseh Street where we found inside a Hispanic male with a single gunshot wound to the head," said Sgt. Michael Brown, Tulsa Police.

EMSA transported the victim to a Tulsa hospital in critical condition.

At this point, Tulsa Police believe the suspects and the victims knew each other.

Investigators are trying to zero in on clues to help them find the three suspects.

"We've had several vehicle descriptions we're not really sure which ones are related we've heard a red pickup truck, we've heard a dark colored Caprice or Impala, and we've heard a white older Ford or Chevy LTD type or Impala," said Sgt. Steve Stoltz, Tulsa Police.

Police say they do not have a good description of the three suspects.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
