LAWTON, Okla. - Lawton Police believe an 18-year-old boy pulled the trigger in last week's double homicide, killing his own father and 13-year-old brother and he didn't act alone.
The latest shocking revelation came Saturday, after police arrested Thorsten Rushing and four of his teenage friends.
Thorsten was in the home the night of the shooting. He told investigators two masked men forced their way into the home armed with guns. He said they opened fire, killing his father and brother. He said he escaped injury after he ran to get a gun and returned fire.
Monday night police said that's a lie and believe Thorsten was the shooter. They believe his four friends were involved.
Between six to eight detectives have been working around the clock on this case since last Monday. And after countless interviews and time spent comparing notes with the Medical Examiner's Office in Oklahoma City, the pieces finally began to fall into place late Friday. And by Saturday afternoon, the five teenagers, police are confident were involved in the crime, were behind bars.
