A Tulsa woman is in critical condition Thursday after being shot during an armed robbery.

Tulsa Police say a man wearing a ski mask walked into this check-cashing business right before the lunch hour and demanded money. Police say after he got the money and some jewelry, he shot Rosa Lopez.

The bullet broke her arm and went into her left side. She then went next door for help. Nearby business owner, Sam Keesh, "She brought herself to our store, she couldn't dial the phone even so I dialed 911 for her. She told me somebody came in and boom, boom, boom shot her and left, run that way."

If anyone has information about this crime, they can call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS or the Spanish tip line at 596-7000.
