Two Oklahoma teens were taken into custody after police discovered the bodies of five people who appeared to have been stabbed to death in a suburban Tulsa home late Wednesday.

Officers were dispatched at 11:30 p.m. to a residence in Broken Arrow in response to an "open 911 call" in which the emergency number is dialed but no one speaks and the line remains open. Broken Arrow Police Sgt. Thomas Cooper told the Tulsa World that police found the five bodies and an injured  juvenile girl.

A 2-year-old child was also found unharmed in the house and was placed in protective custody on Thursday.

The teenage girl was taken to a local hospital and her condition was upgraded Thursday morning from critical to serious condition, KRMG Radio reported.

Authorities said two teenagers, ages 18 and 16, were taken into custody after they were spotted running from the home. Cooper said the teens were related to the victims inside the home.

Police dogs were used to track down the fleeing teens and they were quickly apprehended, 

Cooper told a news conference that the investigation was "very ongoing" and that Broken Arrow police were waiting for a search warrant to go through the home. He said it appeared that everyone involved lived together.

Cooper said the deaths were unusual for Broken Arrow and that the city has only about "one or two homicides every few years."

"Something of this caliber for the officers, it weighs a lot of us, especially when the victims involved are juveniles," Cooper told reporters.

A neighbor of the death house, John Alexander, told the World that the family kept to themselves.

"We did not see this coming at all," said Alexander. "Every neighbor is shocked."
