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.
