A man was shot and killed by a neighbor after he tried drowning twin babies.
Lisa Bratcher, a spokeswoman for Ada police said Foster, who lives in Poteau, about 130 miles east of Ada, showed up at the home where his estranged wife, Michelle Forrells
, was staying with their twin babies. Foster, 27, gained entry into the home, then pulled his estranged wife at knife point, along with their 3 month old babies into a bathroom.
When they got in there, he started to drown the children, while still holding Forrells at knife point.
A 12-year-old girl who also lived in the house ran out for help, Bratcher said.
She ran into the home of their neighbor, Cash Freeman and told him what was going on in her home.
The neighbor, Cash Freeman, rushed back over to the home to find Foster trying to drown the 3-month-old twins, a boy and a girl, in the bathtub.
He then shot Foster twice in the back with a gun.
The girl who ran for help wasn’t identified other than as the granddaughter of the home’s permanent residents.
The babies were “doing great” Sunday after having been released from the hospital, police said. Investigators were reviewing whether Cash Freeman
should face charges inthe shooting death on Friday of Leland Foster.
