Tulsa police continue their search for three men they say broke into an east Tulsa home and shot the man living inside.

According to Tulsa police, the suspects broke into the home near East 31st Street and South Garnett Road around 5:10 a.m. Monday.

A father of four awoke to the break-in, and police say he was subsequently shot in his stomach and leg.

The suspects then tied up the man's wife, according to police, by using duct tape. They say she was tied up at her hands and feet and left in a hallway.

A security system with cameras recording both inside and outside the home is aiding police in their investigation.

They say it shows the three suspects wearing hoodies, but it is unclear if they were wearing masks. The security system is also credited with scaring off the suspects.

Police say it's unclear if the suspects left on foot or by vehicle.

None of the four children inside the home were harmed, nor was the woman who was bound. Police say the children freed their mother.

She was taken by Tulsa police downtown for a statement.

At this time, police believe the home invasion and shooting to be random.

The shooting suspect is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
