BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — Two men are behind bars and under suspicion as persons of interest to last week's double homicide at Haikey Creek Park.

2 News reported Thursday morning when Broken Arrow Police found two men dead in a parking lot at Haikey Creek Park in Broken Arrow with significant trauma to their bodies. Officers responded around 4:30 a.m. when a passer-by saw the two men in a parking lot at the park. The bodies have not yet been identified.

Over the weekend, Broken Arrow Police posted on Facebook they were looking for 18-year-old Denim Lee Blount. U.S. Marshals told 2 News Blount turned himself in on Sunday.

The second man in custody is the grandson of Bixby’s Chief of Police. 20-year-old Hunter Hobbs was arrested on Friday at the police chief's home. Hobbs is also being questioned by police in connection to the killings.

Blount and Hobbs also had warrants for their arrest for shooting with intent to kill in connection to a carjacking at Westminster Apartments earlier this month. The victim was shot multiple times trying to get away. All of this was caught on camera from the apartment complex surveillance system.
