TULSA, OK -- Officers with the Tulsa Police Department are searching for two suspects involved in a shooting Friday night at a Tulsa apartment complex.

Officers received a shots fired call in the 1200 block of South St. Louis Avenue shortly after 11:00 p.m.

Officers arrived to find a man inside an apartment with two gunshot wounds to the abdomen.

He was transported to a Tulsa hospital. Police said his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

The shooting is under investigation, but police believe the victim and two other men were involved in a fight outside the apartments, said Captain Jonathan Brooks, Tulsa Police Department. Brooks said that's when one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the victim two times.

Police believe the victim then ran into his apartment, while the two suspects drove away.

Officers don't know why the men were fighting, but Brooks said alcohol was involved.
