    TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. -- Three people are dead in what had been described as a hostage situation at Tinker Air Force Base on Monday, authorities say.
    Police confirmed that two of the people killed were children. The other person is an adult; however, the relationship between the adult and the children is unknown. Likewise, it has not been confirmed how the three died or if an assailant could be on the loose.
    Residents of Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma were urged to stay inside as base security forces respond to a disturbance at military family housing at about 2:40 p.m. According to scanner traffic, the suspect is an Air Force officer who is stationed at Tinker. Indications were that the officer might be holding people hostage, possibly his children.

    The base has 26,000 military and civilian employees. It is the largest single-site employer in Oklahoma.
    Stay tuned to Eyewitness News 5 and koco.com for further details.

    I'd rather not give any details than what I heard on the news earlier.

    Basically a guy was in a domestic dispute with his wife (or ex wife i believe). She left the house and he took the life of both of his kids and himself.

    the 10:00 news just aired. They still haven't released name or rank so we won't get into that. They also haven't mentioned squadron or group so we won't get into that either.

    They mentioned that the couple was in the process of getting a divorce. An emergency restraining issue was ordered about 3 weeks ago so that the father would not have custody of the children. Last week a different judge issued the father partial custody.

    I just don't understand how something like this happens. What a terrible series of events.
