DELAWARE, Ohio (WCMH) — A man was taken into custody on Monday morning after being accused of shooting and killing his parents Sunday afternoon in Delaware.

According to a statement from the City of Delaware, officers were called to a house on Bristol Drive at around 3 p.m. after two adults failed to meet someone. When officers arrived at the house, they found 61-year-old Mohamed Alusine Kandeh and 60-year-old Bintu Kandeh dead from gunshot wounds.

25-year-old Mohamed Lamin Kandeh, who Delaware police say is the son of the victims, was issued an arrest warrant and was taken into custody Monday morning by Delaware police with assistance from the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Police said he was taken into custody at 11 a.m. when he was stopped in his vehicle at Maloney Road and McCurdy Road in Oxford Township, approximately eight miles away from the scene.

Officers were conducting a wellness check for the victims, who lived in the home for more than 20 years.
