Tulsa Police were kept busy overnight investigating a home invasion and what they say was a gang related shooting.

The home invasion happened around 1 a.m. Tuesday at the Westminster Apartments in the 4800 block of South 74th East Avenue. 

Tulsa Police say two men, one armed with a pistol, approached 2 men outside their apartment. The suspects demanded money, and then forced the victims inside where three more people were. 

The suspects took cash, a laptop computer and a video game box then ran off. 

No one has been arrested. 

Police say a couple of the victims were roughed up, but will be okay. 

In an unrelated incident earlier in the night, Tulsa Police continue to look for four suspects who fired into an occupied apartment. 

Police were called to the Red Fox Apartments at 16th and Memorial around 11 p.m. Monday.  They say as many as 11 rounds were fired into one of the apartment units, which was occupied by a woman and three children. 

Tulsa Police tell the News On 6 this shooting had something to do with gang-related activity at a nearby convenience store. 

Again, no one was hurt.
