OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Police in Oklahoma City say they’ve arrested a 34-year-old man in connection with the weekend killings of a man and a woman on the city’s northeast side.

Investigators say Rahshaan Sardis of Oklahoma City was taken into custody on first-degree murder charges following the deaths of 42-year-old Charles Roland and 27-year-old Jasmine Clayton.

The victims were shot about 6:30 p.m. Saturday at a northeast Oklahoma City residence. Clayton was pronounced dead at the scene and Roland died later at a local hospital.

Police say the shooting occurred after Sardis allegedly went to the residence and got involved in an altercation with the victims. Authorities say Sardis pulled out a gun and shot each of them.

Officials say several other people, including children, were also at the residence but weren’t injured.
