Oklahoma City Police were called at 9:35 a.m. Monday stating that five people were dead inside a home near Southwest 29th Street and South Czech Hall Road.

Police found all five people, four victims and the suspect, had been shot to death.

A fourth child, a 10-year-old boy, was unharmed and woke up Monday morning and discovered what had happened to his family, Master Sgt. Gary Knight said at a press conference Tuesday.

“Investigators determined that sometime overnight the husband and father in the home, Jonathon Candy, became involved in an altercation with his wife, Lindsay,” Knight said.

“At some point, he armed himself with a gun, shot her multiple times, killing her. At that point, he systematically went through the home, shooting and killing their children.”

Investigators found no signs of a struggle, and Knight said at least one of the children was shot in bed.

“It’s unclear what made him want to go through the home killing the children, but make no mistake about it, what happened in that residence was nothing short of a massacre,” Knight added.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation can call the Homicide Tip-Line at 405-297-1200.

Ethan and Lucas Candy were Mustang Public Schools students, while Dylan Candy was a 2023 Mustang graduate, according to information released by the school district Monday.
