A man is recovering after police say he was robbed and beaten early Thursday morning in his northwest Oklahoma City apartment.

Police say three suspects forced their way into a unit at the Lincoln Green Apartments near N.W. 122nd Street and Penn. They pistol-whipped the man living there and robbed him.

Police say during the assault, the suspects' gun fired, sending bullets into the apartment above. There were people sleeping in the apartment, but no one was hit by gunfire.
