EL RENO, Oklahoma - A woman and four children were found dead Monday in an El Reno apartment, police said.
El Reno police received a call about 4 p.m. to check on the welfare of occupants of a unit at the Elizabeth Place Apartments near Oklahoma 66 and U.S. 81, said Jessica Brown, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
"An officer went inside the residence and found multiple dead bodies," Brown said. "He backed out and called for help."
El Reno Police did not release the victims names. Friends and neighbors identified them as Summer Rust and her children, including 8-year-old Kirsten, 7-year-old Autumn, 4-year-old Tegean, and 3-year-old Evan Garris.
Rust's friends said she moved to El Reno from Springfield, Missouri to attend Redlands Community College. She wanted to work for the Department of Human Services.
