Three people have been charged in connection with a double homicide of a woman and her mother in Michigan, according to a report.
The killings happened over a dispute about a couple's children, police said.
Brion Reynolds was supposed to take his three kids on Sept. 19. But, he and the children’s mother, Alexis Brown, 24, argued, one of Brown’s friends told police, according to an affidavit obtained by the Lansing State Journal.
As Brown took out the car seats, witnesses reported she ran back to the house saying Reynolds shot her and her mom, according to the Lansing State Journal.
Brown and her mom, 46-year-old Michelle Roper went back into the home, according to the Lansing State Journal. The children and another women were also inside the home. Reynolds followed them inside and kept shooting.
The oldest of the two children then got in a car driven by Reynold's friend, Gavin Anspach. Reynolds then got into the car and the group left the home.
Lansing, Michigan, police arrived and rushed Brown to the hospital, where she later died, the Lansing State Journal reported.

Roper was found dead in the home, along with a wounded 6-year-old boy, according to the Lansing State Journal.
Reynolds faces two counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder and two weapons charges, the Lansing State Journal reported.
Anspach and Reynolds’ sister, Monea Reynolds, both were both charged with accessory after the fact of a felony, according to the Lansing State Journal.
Anspach told police Brion Reynolds offered him $20 to give him a ride to pick up the children, the Lansing State Journal reported
When Anspach picked up Reynolds, he had his usual .40 caliber gun in his pocket, and he put a rifle in the tailgate of the truck because “you know how her family is,” Reynolds told Anspach, the Lansing State Journal reported.
Anspach told police he parked outside and watched as Reynolds went inside, then came back out and asked Anspach to move to the driveway, according to the Lansing State Journal.
Anspach told police that as he moved the vehicle, Reynolds began walking toward the residence and shooting at it, the Lansing State Journal reported.
