Tulsa Police say they have reason to believe two shootings involving teenagers may be connected.

The first happened Monday night in the 2200 block of North Birmingham Place, near Apache and North Lewis.

Police say the victim was shot once in the face while trying to buy marijuana.

The victim was with a group of friends when someone in another group gathered on the front porch of a home grabbed a gun and started firing.

The victim was taken to the hospital. Police say he was treated and released.

The second shooting occurred at 9:30 Monday night in the 2000 block of North Columbia Place, just a few blocks from the first shooting.

Police say a teen boy was shot once in the lower body during a drive-by shooting.

Witnesses reportedly told police a light color SUV was seen in the area when the shooting happened.

Police say this incident is possibly related to the first, but weren't able to provide details.

The victim in the second shooting had minor injuries and is expected to be okay.

Anyone with information on either shooting is asked to call Tulsa Crimestoppers at (918) 596-COPS.
