ADA, Okla. (KFOR) - An Ada man was shot and killed by a neighbor Friday after he tried drowning twin babies, according to authorities.

Officials say the man was threatening a woman and her children in an Ada home.

The woman reportedly kept screaming for help, saying the man had a knife.

According to a report from KXII-TV in Sherman, Texas, that’s when a 12-year-old who was in the home ran to a neighbor’s house for help.

The neighbor rushed back over to the home to find the man trying to drown the 3-month-old boy and girl in the bathtub, the neighbor told police.

He then shot the man twice with a revolver.

The babies were flown to an Oklahoma City hospital where they are reportedly in stable condition.

Their grandfather told KXII, he was just happy the twins were safe and okay.
