5 children, 1 adult killed in Oklahoma home

Muskogee Police are reporting that one man and five children have been shot to death inside a Muskogee house.

Officers responded to a call at about 1:30 a.m. of a multiple shooting at the home, police said in a press release.

Hamlin described the slain youths as "small children" but said police do not yet have their exact ages. "One of our officers fired at that suspect, missing him", Hamlin said.

Once there, officers encountered a person with a gun who was later taken into custody. Meanwhile, police located the bodies of a man and four children inside the home. A critically injured fifth child was airlifted to a hospital in Tulsa but also died. An adult female is now in the hospital with life-threatening injuries, police add, per USA Today.

The Muskogee police chief told NBC he believes this is a domestic incident.

Police later took the suspect into custody, though no additional information regarding their identity or charges was provided.

Authorities have not released his name or any details about the people who died. They say he is connected to the family, but did not elaborate on how.

The suspect was being held in the Muskogee County jail Tuesday morning, according to Hamlin.
