OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — A man has been arrested after two decapitated bodies were found inside a home daycare in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

On Tuesday afternoon, officers were called to check on the welfare of a couple. When officers arrived, they found Quinton Dashawn Laster, 20, outside of the home, according to KFOR.

Inside the home, officers found the bodies of 78-year-old James Earl Reed and 59-year-old Sharon Reed. According to officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department, the victims had been shot and decapitated.

Family members told KFOR the home was being used as a daycare at the time of the murders.

Authorities say they discovered three small children in a covered garage. The children were not harmed and were later reunited with their families.

“Luckily, they weren’t injured in any way, shape or form,” said Sgt. Ashley Peters, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Officials say Laster is the grandson of Sharon Reed. He was arrested on two charges of first-degree murder.
