SAPULPA, Okla. -- A suspect is in custody after a double homicide at a convenience store in Sapulpa Sunday night.

Police say Heath Haney, 37, was taken into custody without incident Monday.


Police said a customer called 911 at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday after he went into the store and saw a man lying in a pool of blood. When officers arrived, they found a second man dead behind the counter. Police said they believe both victims died from gunshot wounds to the head.

Police later identified the victims as 46-year-old Mohid Khandker, a store owner from Tulsa, and 40-year-old Robert Fields.

Officer said it's too early to tell right now, but they are looking at robbery as the possible motives for these homicides.

"I don't think people need to be too scared," said Maj. Mike Reed with the Sapulpa Police Department. "This is something that's not normal for our city, but our guys are going to be working around the clock until we get some resolution to this."

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is now helping Sapulpa police process the crime scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sapulpa police at 918-224-3862.
