    Police say three men used a "peculiar weapon" to shoot a robbery victim Monday morning. 

    Officers responded just after 3:30 a.m. to apartments near 47th and Yale. 

    A victim and witness were with a man named "Tuffy" and someone else, when the victim answered the door to find Tuffy's younger brother. 

    Tuffy, his brother and the third person allegedly took out guns and told the victim he was being robbed. He ran down the hallway and was shot once in the arm. The bullet continued to his chest. 

    The trio allegedly told the witness to lay on the ground while they ransacked the apartment and left. 

    Officers found spent and live .300 AAC rounds in the hallways of the first and second floors. Officers say they belong to a .300 AAC Blackout, which was a "peculiar" weapon in and of itself. 

    The witness claimed the unusual weapon was also suppressed, making less noise than a typical firearm. 

    Officers say Tuffy is a 19-year-old black male, about 6'3" and 270 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red hoodie and black pants. 

    The second suspect was a Hispanic male, about 5'7" and 180 pounds. He was in a black jacket and jeans. 

    Tuffy's brother was described as a black male, 5'10" and 130 pounds, wearing a white shirt. 

    The victim told police a suspect's mother possibly lives in the same apartment complex, on the bottom floor.
