SPENCER, Okla. - A man is in custody after a homicide in Spencer.

The homicide was reported around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday at a house near N.E. 36th and Spencer Road.

Authorities said family members discovered the man.

"They couldn’t get into the home, so they called another relative who came over with a key and let him into the house," said Mark Opgrande with the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office. "So, inside, they found a deceased male inside the house.”

Police said a person of interest was located driving the victim's vehicle recklessly near N.E. 36th and Triple X Road. He was taken into custody shortly after.

"This is just the very early stages of the investigation," Opgrande said. "We’re trying to go interview this person of interest, trying to find out what happened at this location.”

Authorities haven't released the names of the men or the cause of death of the victim.
