TULSA, OK -- Two brothers walking home from a store were victims of a drive-by shooting Thursday night. Tulsa Police say the men were walking along the 500 block of East 36th Street North at about 10:45 p.m. when three men drove up in a green four-door Maxima and opened fire.

The men in the car asked the brothers, "Do you know us?" The victims told police they said "No," then started to run when they felt threatened.

The men in the car opened fire with a semi-automatic handgun, and one of the brothers was struck once in the left thigh. Both victims made it to a nearby home where EMSA, Tulsa Fire and Tulsa Police were called.

The three suspects are described as black males wearing white T-shirts with dread locks.

The gunshot victim is expected to recover.
