OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police in Oklahoma City have found two bodies following a standoff at a mobile home park on the city’s southwest side.

Officer Jeff Dutton says authorities received a 911 call about 7:30 a.m. Monday from a man who claimed to have shot his roommate. Dutton says the man claimed to have barricaded himself inside his mobile home and threatened to blow the structure up.

Officers found a man barricaded inside one of the units and evacuated some other mobile homes in the area as they negotiate with the suspect. Authorities believed he was armed with a shotgun and was dangerous.

Dutton says that after several hours of trying to contact him, officers entered the home and found two bodies inside.

The names of the two individuals have not been released.
