5 dead In Oklahoma; 2 teens in custody
Police in eastern Oklahoma say five people have been found dead and two teenagers were taken into custody.
"I've been here 19 years and I don't know if we've had more than three homicides in a year. I don't think we've had a single incident of this magnitude," Broken Arrow Police Cpl. Leon Calhoun said.
"It was a pretty gruesome scene and unprecedented in terms of the types of crimes we get in Broken Arrow.
"This is a relatively safe community, smaller than Tulsa and what you might call a bedroom community.
"The crime scene has taken a pretty heavy toll on officers who have come out here. It hits close to home, especially when the victims are adults and juveniles.
"Our officers have a lot to take in," Broken Arrow Police Cpl. Leon Calhoun said.
