TULSA -- Police have four juveniles in custody suspected of robbing two different places Thursday morning.

Officers said the first incident occurred at a Quiktrip on the 2700 block of East Admiral around 1 a.m.

The victim told police that he parked his car at the convenience store and that a man in another vehicle jumped into his passenger side and demanded money. The victim said the man had a shotgun.

"The victim in this robbery grabbed the shotgun and was trying to push this individual out of his car and drive away from the scene," said Captain Nelson.

The victim was able to get away unharmed after the suspect shot several rounds in his direction.

Then around 2 a.m. police responded to a call of a home invasion near East 46th Street North and North Garrison Avenue. Officers say two suspects broke into a home, hit someone with a gun and tried to steal belongings.

When officers arrived, they found the vehicle connected to the Quiktrip robbery parked outside the house of the home invasion. After a short standoff with police, four juveniles who were inside the home were taken into custody.

Police say there was a child inside the home at the time of the incident, but wasn't injured.

The juveniles are being questioned about the two robberies and their possible involvement in them.
