TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Department of Human Services has removed six children from a Tulsa home they had been staying at after the shooting of four people at their grandparents' home over the weekend.

The Tulsa World reports that the children had been staying with their grandparents when four people were shot to death and a fifth seriously wounded Saturday.

Sgt. Dave Walker says the children's mother took custody of the kids after the shooting and placed them at another a neighbor's home nearby, but the home didn't have gas or running water.

The Department of Human Services got involved on Tuesday. A DHS spokeswoman says the agency was not involved in placing the children in the neighbor's home.

The children range in age from 2 months to 8 years old.
