OKLAHOMA CITY – One person is recovering after being shot and pistol whipped during a robbery in northwest Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City police officers were called to the area of N.W. 10th and Rockwell Ave. around 1:30 a.m. on Friday following reports of a robbery.

The victim was walking home and was approached by a stranger when he got to his apartment. Authorities say the suspect demanded money from the victim, but the victim said he didn’t have any cash.
