Three people robbed a woman at a north Tulsa Walgreens at 46th Street North Peoria, Monday afternoon. The thieves led police on a short chase through a neighborhood.

It was a scary moment for the victim in the
Walgreens parking lot. Police say she had just shopped inside the store, then got inside her car and that's when the men approached her, pointed a shotgun at her and told her to get out of her Camry.

Tulsa police
say just after 1:30 p.m., they got the call that a woman had been robbed and carjacked.

Investigators tell FOX23 just moments later, a nearby officer spotted the Toyota Camry,
and that's when police say the car took off at a high rate of speed.


Police say the men abandoned the car right in the front yard of a
home.

"The suspects jumped out of the vehicle, fled on foot. We had the area contained, and 
we apprehended two individuals that are possibly our suspects," Cpl. Larry L. Edwards said.

Police tell FOX23 they are looking for a third person.


An unknown amount of cash was taken from that woman's purse.

Investigators are looking into whether this robbery is connected to others in this area over the last week.
