TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police are investigating after several robbers shot a man, pistol-whipped another and killed a dog during a home invasion in east Tulsa.

According to police, four males wearing masks and dark clothing entered a home around 2 a.m. Tuesday and demanded money from the residents. Officer Leland Ashley says one of the suspects shot a 31-year-old man in the mouth with a rifle and another suspect struck a 52-year-old man with a gun.

Authorities say the robbers then bound the men’s hands with duct tape before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash and a cellphone. Police say a dog in the home was shot during the incident.

The victims were transported to the hospital with injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening. Police say a 26-year-old woman and two children, ages 1 and 6, who live in the home were not harmed.
