TULSA -- Police are investigating a shooting Sunday morning at a south Tulsa Walgreens store.

The shooting happened at the store at 71st and Lewis.

Police said two women were inside a Cadillac in the parking lot when one was shot by a woman outside the vehicle. Paramedics took the victim, who had a wound to her arm, to the hospital.

Police said the shooter left the scene in a tan Trailblazer with two other people.

Police said the shooter, described as a thin white woman between 25 to 30 years old with sandy blonde hair, may be the same person involved in a robbery at a Best Buy at 71st and Garnett on Saturday night involving a fake weapon.

She also matched the suspect description in a pointing a deadly weapon report Sunday morning at AMC Theater near 41st and Yale. Police said a woman was stealing a tag off a vehicle at the theater, and when an employee confronted her, she threatened the employee with a gun and left the scene in a gray 90s GMC SUV.

Police are still investigating the incidents.
