Five children and one adult were killed in the Oklahoma shooting.

Police said that including five young children six people were shot to death early Tuesday at a home in Oklahoma, the suspect in the killing was taken into custody. Oklahoma Police said in a statement that at a home in Muskogee, a city of just under 40,000 people about 45 miles southeast of Tulsa officers responded about 1:30 a.m. to a call of multiple people shot.

According to the statement, officers encountered a person with a gun there. The suspect ran from the scene but was later taken into custody after an officer shot at the suspect and missed it.

The police said that Officers at the scene found one man and four children dead among which the fifth child died at a Tulsa hospital. Muskogee Police Officer Lynn Hamlin said that police didn’t have exact ages of youths who died but described the slain youths as “small children,”. She said that the authorities believe no other involvement of any other suspects but they don’t have the motive yet.

Hamlin said that they don’t believe the crime to be random but they just don’t have the details yet of what or why happened. She said that a woman was also taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The name of the person arrested or any additional details about the people who died have not yet been released by the authorities. More information were expected to get released by the police later on Tuesday.
