Tulsa, Oklahoma: Robbers Chased With Gunfire

Tulsa, Oklahoma

From the December 21, 2007 Tulsa World:

A man was shot in the leg Thursday after exchanging gunfire with someone who apparently was trying to rob his brother.

The man who was shot went to a hospital, but his injury was not life-threatening, Officer Leland Ashley said.

The shots were fired just before 11 a.m. after a man who was fixing a flat tire outside his home in the area of 5900 E. 30th St. was approached by two men, one of whom pointed a gun at his back, Ashley said. He started yelling at the men, and his cousin and his brother — who was armed with a gun — came outside the house to help him.

Shots were exchanged, and the man’s brother was shot in the leg, Ashley said. The assailants then ran away.

Police are searching for the two men, whose descriptions were not available. They also are continuing to investigate who fired the first shots and how many shots were fired.
