TULSA (AP) — Police in Tulsa say four women were found shot to death inside an apartment and authorities are searching for a suspect in the deaths.

A 4-year-old boy found in the same apartment was unharmed.

Police spokeswoman Officer Jill Roberson says police received a 911 call shortly after 12:30 p.m. Monday about the victims. It was not immediately clear what relationship the boy has with the victims.

Roberson says investigators are on the scene to identify the victims and determine how they died.

Tulsa police spokesman Officer Leland Ashley says the women all suffered gunshot wounds. Ashley tells Tulsa television station KOKI that the child has been taken into protective custody.

Ashley says police are hopeful someone in the community will come forward with more information about the shootings.
