Police continue investigating an early morning home invasion on Tulsa’s north side.

It happened around 7:00 a.m. near 47th Street North and Peoria.

Police say it all started when they got a call about a shooting victim near 46th street n and MLK, about a mile away. Officers say they didn’t find anything, but just minutes later they were called to 47th & Peoria for another shooting.

On the scene of this morning’s shooting, family member Johnny Hubbard tells FOX23 News he also got a call.

“From my aunt that my cousin had been shot after someone broke into my grandmother’s house” he says. “He lives there with my grandmother.”

Hubbard says it was cousin, Maseo Panell, who was shot. He reports via family members who took Panell to the hospital, doctors say the bullet when in and out of his leg.

It’s around the same time Panell showed up at an area hospital, Tulsa Police Captain Steve Odom said officers got a call about another gunshot victim also showing up at an area hospital.

As the investigation unfolded, checking back in with police we found out the two shootings were not related, and police are continuing to investigate who broke in to this family’s home and shot Panell.

Hubbard calls the incident odd—his 89-year-old grandmother has lived in the home for 30 years he says and has never dealt with anything like this.

Plus he says who breaks into a home around 7 am when the sun is up?

“It’s kind of weird, that’s why I rushed over here like ‘these people have got to be idiots.’”

Officers say they did find a gun here in the front yard, but they don’t yet know how it factors in to this shooting, or whether any bullets were fired from it.
