TULSA, OK -- A pair of unrelated shootings early Monday morning sends two victims to Tulsa hospitals.

Tulsa Police are looking for a suspect in a shooting at a bar at 31st and Mingo early Monday. Police say a 30-year-old man was shot once at Torchy's Saloon.

The victim was taken to the hospital; we do not have his condition. As police investigated the shooting, two of the victim's friends showed up.

One of the friends was arrested for having an SKS rifle.

Then at about 2 a.m., Tulsa Police officers spotted a vehicle matching the description of one seen leaving the bar at the time of the shooting.

The driver abandoned the vehicle at 40th Place North and Garrison and ran away.

Police used dogs and a helicopter to find him, but came up empty handed.

Another shooting overnight occurred at the Sierra Pointe Apartments at 14th and 107th East Avenue.

The shooting resulted in 34-year-old victim taken to the hospital.

Tulsa Police say this shooting started out with a home invasion where a man was held up for cash.

The victim told police he didn't have any money, so the suspects left.

The victim then called his brother and got into a confrontation with the suspects.

One of the suspects was then shot in the leg.

No one has been arrested.
