TULSA — Tulsa Police Department responded to an armed robbery that turned into a shooting at a Family Hair and Nail Salon near 31st Street and Highway 169.

Officers say the robbery took place on Saturday afternoon.

The two male suspects entered the store wearing clothing that covered all but a small portion of their faces, police say.

Officers say one suspect was armed with what appeared to be a small-caliber revolver, and the other was armed with what appeared to be a semiautomatic pistol with a large banana style clip.

The suspects demanded money, officers say.

Officers say a woman began to struggle with the suspect that had the revolver.

During the struggle, the victim was apparently shot in the hand, while another shot broke the window glass of the front door.

Police say the suspects left with a large amount of cash and were last seen leaving the business on a single black Ninja type motorcycle.

The victim was transported to St. Francis Hospital with a grazing wound to her hand, officers say.

There is no further information at this time.
