Tulsa Police are investigating the armed robbery of a family in their home.

Officers were called just before 12:30 AM Thursday to a home in the 4500 block of East Young. The victims say two people wearing masks held them up with a shotgun. They believe the suspects are teenagers.

An Xbox video game system and some change were taken. The suspects ran off on foot. A shotgun was found several blocks away.

No one was hurt.

As authorities continued to investigate that home robbery, they found themselves in another situation.

A detective and officer spotted a vehicle driving recklessly and at a high speed. They followed it. The driver went around a corner at 4600 East Xyler and then lost control. He hit several vehicles, pushing a van into the garage of a home.

Two people tried to run off. They were arrested, one on the roof of a house.
