Police in Oklahoma released more information Monday after a murder-suicide left three young children dead this past weekend.
Oklahoma City police said officers responded to a home on NW 109th Street early Saturday morning following a check-welfare call.
Police said the deceased suspect, 30-year-old Francoise Littlejohn, had left the family’s home with three of his children and began streaming live on social media with threats to harm them.
A relative of the family noticed the stream and notified police at 4:14 a.m. Officers began trying to locate the kids to get them home safely.
Police said surveillance video timestamped just minutes before showed Littlejohn pulling into a neighborhood and parking in the 11300 block of Treemont Lane. That’s where police said he executed the children before turning the gun on himself.
The children were identified as 3-year-old Trinity Littlejohn, 4-year-old Aliyah Littlejohn, and 6-year-old Karen Littlejohn.
Police aren’t sure why Francoise Littlejohn decided to stop on Treemont Lane.
A runner in that area saw the car with the four bodies inside and notified police around 7:25 a.m. Saturday.
