TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police are investigating a shooting near Second Street and Fulton Avenue that led to two teenage boys being in the hospital. 

Police said three brothers were outside their home when two men came by and shot two of the teens, hitting one in the head and the other in the chest. 

"Now we have two teenagers in the hospital, both fighting for their lives,” Lt. Brandon Watkins said.

Watkins said the shootings were most likely not random and police are working to figure out who the suspects are and how they know the teens. Police are also working to figure out if more than one gun was involved, and if both men were shooting. 

"We had a lot of shell casings so I would assume more than one person was firing, but we'll have to wait until we get that back from the lab,” Watkins said. 

Watkins said the third brother who wasn't shot is being cooperative with the investigation, and police ask anyone else who saw something, to speak up. Police said the two men drove away in a dark colored four-door car. 

Tulsa Police said there are some doorbell cameras in the neighborhood and officers are working on gathering that to see if video could shed some light on what happened. 

"It happened over there in an area that's actually pretty quiet. Not a lot happening in those neighborhoods. So, if anybody noticed something last night that was out of the ordinary, just contact us,” Watkins said.
