Tulsa — 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.

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.
