20-year-old man allegedly shot and decapitated his grandparents inside an Oklahoma City home that doubled as a day care.
Investigators who came to the house for a welfare check Tuesday afternoon found three children huddled inside an attached garage. The children were unharmed, police said.
But inside the house, authorities found a grisly scene. Sharon Reed, 59, and James Reed, 78, were dead.
"Both victims had been shot and decapitated," police said.
Officers had spotted Quinton Laster, 20, outside. They detained him there as they ventured into the house. Now, police say Laster, the Reeds' grandson, is being held on two counts of first-degree murder.
was not immediately clear whether Laster had retained a lawyer.
Investigators haven't revealed details about a possible motive in the killing, or outlined any evidence they've uncovered in the case.
