EDMOND, Okla. (AP) -- Police in an Oklahoma City suburb have arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of fatally shooting his parents.

Edmond Police Sgt. James Hamm says a younger sibling heard gunshots early Monday morning and called authorities, who discovered the bodies of a man and a woman inside a home. Hamm says the older son surrendered and was taken into custody in connection with the deaths.

Hamm says police believe the 19-year-old shot and killed his parents and that authorities don't believe the younger son was involved.

No names have been released.
