An investigation into "another" convenience store robbery in Tulsa. This one left the clerk very shaken up.

Tulsa Police say around one o'clock Thursday morning, two armed men wearing masks walked into the EZ mart at Virgin and Sheridan. They demanded money from the safe, which the clerk couldn't give them.

The suspects took money from the register, and then fired a shot into a security monitor. But that's not all. Tulsa Police Corporal Dallas Jones, “took the employee, laid him down, tried to get security system, get the tape out of it, they couldn't do that so they took the employee to the front of the store, laid him down in front and then left going northbound on Sheridan.”

The clerk was not hurt. Police don't have a good description of the suspects because they were wearing the masks.

Tulsa Police believe the same two men may be responsible for shooting a clerk at the Corner Stop convenience store near 5th and Sheridan late Tuesday night.

19-year-old Ragib Mohammad was shot twice. He was treated at the hospital and sent home.
