A murder investigation has been launched after eight bodies were found in a burning house in Oklahoma.
A fire broke out in Broken Arrow, about 13 miles southeast of Tulsa, at about 4 p.m. Thursday.
Broken Arrow police said the fire and death were being investigated as a homicide but they did not believe there was an immediate threat to the public.
Police spokesman Ethan Hutchins said the scene was complex with “a lot of moving parts”.
He added: “Understandably, it was a shock to Broken Arrow.
“It’s a safe city. Broken Arrow doesn’t happen every day.”
Broken Arrow is Tulsa’s largest suburb with nearly 115,000 residents.
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also participated in the investigation.
