JENKS, Okla. (AP) — A spokesman for police in the Tulsa suburb of Jenks says they’re trying to determine why a 36-year-old man fatally shot his 8-year-old and 10-year-old sons before killing himself. Sgt. Eric Bowdle said Tuesday that officers are “deeply involved in trying to determine a motive.” Police said Thang Khen gathered his four children in the garage of their home Saturday afternoon and fatally shot 8-year-old Peter Khen and 10-year-old Samuel Pau. Police said a 9-year-old fled into the house and an infant was unharmed.
