OKLAHOMA CITY -- A home invasion lands one man in the hospital, while two armed suspects remain on the loose.

The violent robbery took place Monday night near N.W. 10th and Ann Arbor.

Oklahoma City Police rushed to the street after two armed suspects allegedly shot a man inside his own home.

"Apparently, the suspects just walked right in and demanded cash," said Oklahoma City Police MSgt. Gary Knight. "They just simply walked in an unlocked door. One was armed with a gun."

Investigators say the victim, Charles Sullivan, told the thieves he wouldn't give them any money.

That's when the situation turned violent.

"When the victim refused, he got into an altercation and he was shot," said Knight.

"It was a surprise to me," said one neighbor.

The victim's next door neighbor overheard the shooting and says the suspects clearly targeted and ambushed the victim.

"They hid until they got in the door and then they shoved him in," said the neighbor.

After shooting the victim, the suspects ran away from the house with a significant amount of money.

The good news... the victim is expected to make a full recovery.

Unlike a majority of home invasions, where drugs are the primary motive, police say that does not appear to be true in this case.

"There's no indication they knew each other in any form or fashion," said Knight. "It's unclear what led up to the crime. Why they were targeted."

No one has yet been arrested.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 405-325-7300.
