A family member found a woman and child dead inside a home Thursday afternoon, and Norman police spent the evening processing the house as a crime scene.

Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley said police and emergency personnel responded to a report of a shooting victim about 3 p.m. at 310 180th Avenue S.E.

Easley said names and ages of the victims were not being released Thursday evening. No other injuries were reported.

“There are no additional injuries that we are aware of,” Easley said.

Easley said he couldn’t release where inside the house the bodies were found. The child was covered. However, a description of the item wasn’t available.

Officers sealed off a perimeter around the single-story brick home with crime tape. Easley said detectives obtained a search warrant about 5 p.m. Thursday for the residence.

Easley said firearms were found inside the house. Investigators were not actively seeking a suspect. Detectives concentrated on processing the crime scene and talking with family members.

“We will be here quite some time. We want to be very thorough,” Easley said.

The house, decorated with Halloween decór, sits away from the road. Neighbors soon gathered across the street and watched investigators.

In addition to Norman police, Cleveland County sheriff’s deputies and EMSStat paramedics also responded to the scene.
