TULSA, Okla. (KJRH/KFOR) – A man was arrested after he allegedly killed his parents inside their Tulsa home.  

On Monday, around 8:45 a.m., police responded to an abandoned vehicle call near Jenks East Elementary School.

When police arrived at the scene, they found the vehicle with rifles inside.

Records inside the SUV led investigators to a home near East 88th Street and Braden Ave.

KJRH reports police smelled a strong odor of gas coming from the home, so firefighters and a Hazmat crew were called to the scene.

Homes nearby were evacuated, and authorities searched the home where they found Beverly and Joseph Spence dead.
