Police are searching for two robbers that shot a man in his garage.

Fox23 spent the day talking to neighbors who say this is not a bad neighborhood. Tulsa police say this can happen anywhere.

Around 8 p.m. Monday, police were called to the Lewiston Apartments for a robbery where two men fired several shots and robbed a man.

"We had an individual that was robbed as he was leaving Walgreens. On his way back to his apartment, the suspects confronted him, took his cellphone, took some cash and forced him back to his apartment," says Tulsa police public information officer Leland Ashley.

The victim's roommate didn't open the door so the assailants ran off but police say the robbers didn't stop there.

They found another man inside his garage and as he tried to run in his house, they shot him in the stomach.

We spoke with several neighbors off camera; many of them say they fear for their safety.

Others say the crime in this area has increased.

The Heller Park Homeowner's Association president says she thinks the crime is coming from the nearby apartments.

Tulsa police beg to differ.

"I don't think you can say they're from the apartment complexes without knowing these individuals and where they live. I think it would be unfair and unjust to say these individuals came from an apartment complex we don't know that," says Ashley.

Police searched the London Square apartments Monday night, thinking the men may be hiding there, but they were unable to find them.

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their dedication to exceptional civic values, stable traditional families, parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture and their unflagging pride in maintaining exemplary clean, neat and orderly homes. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Property values are boosted and energized by the entry of African Americans into an area thanks to the caring and sincere respect they show for these communities, their absolute dedication to lives of law abiding peaceful neighborliness, and the examples of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self improvement by hard work and a self-reliant, can-do culture of integrity and honor. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.
