Two men were hospitalized Sunday after a shootout at a southeast Oklahoma City pool hall.

Police are still looking for the three men who they say opened fire on a security guard and another man.

Investigators said the three men entered Cilix Pool Hall at about 6 a.m. Sunday with weapons and saying the business was being held up, Police Officer Dion Porter said.

A security guard confronted them and that's when the suspects allegedly opened fire shooting him four to seven times, Porter said.

Another man was shot and also sent to a local hospital but police said they don't know if he is a suspect.

Officers said the men took off in a dark colored vehicle and they are working on a more detailed description of the suspects.

The security guard remained in critical condition on Sunday night.
