MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) -- Police say three Oklahoma City men were found apparently shot to death inside a home in Midwest City and a suspect is being sought.

Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes said Sunday that officers went to the home after a caller to 911 reported "something bad" had happened.

Clabes says officers found 51-year-old Terrence Jackson, 39-year-old Donielle Gregory and 39-year-old Derrel Barksdale Jr. dead about 9 p.m. Saturday and are searching for 42-year-old Roman Pugh.

Clabes said Pugh is considered armed and dangerous.

Clabes says a woman who was in a bedroom of the home heard the shooting and escaped out a window with her 10-year-old daughter and later called her mother, who then called 911.

Clabes said a motive for the shooting has not been determined.
