A man called police in Kentucky to say he killed his brother and sister-in-law and now faces murder charges, authorities said.

Glasgow, Kentucky, police responded to a home on Sept. 2 and were met by Cody Nathaniel Bacon, 21, who was waving his arms to flag down the officers with a gun in his hand, according to the Glasgow Police Department.

Bacon complied with police commands, and was taken into custody without issue, and "began to state he was sorry for what he done," according to the Bowling Green Daily News.

Officers located a man and woman nearby, later identified as 24-year-old David A. Pace and 22-year-old Brittany R. Pace. They were pronounced dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

Police said Bacon stated he emptied a 9mm handgun of ammo on his brother and sister-in-law because he was “tired of them fussing with the children,” Glasgow Police Sgt. Wesley Hicks told WNKY News.

Bacon reportedly said there were two children behind him when he fired the gun. They were later identified as the Pace’s 6- and 3-year-old sons.

“We never saw the shooter without a gun in the whole three years that we’ve lived here, he always had a gun visible, strapped to his body,” neighbor David Stoll told WAVE 3 News.

“I just knew by living here for three years what the culture was over there, and knew that that’s what it was, and therefore did not feel threatened in any way.”

Bacon is being held without bond at the Barren County jail on two counts of murder and two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. He is scheduled to appear for an arraignment in Barren District Court on Oct. 11.
