In a press conference Wednesday morning on Tinker Air Force Base, the names of those shot and killed on Monday were released along with medical findings.

Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel said an autoposy conducted on Tuesday concluded 9-year-old Jourdain Thorson was shot five times including once in the heart and once in the head. The boy, 4-year-old Dylan Thorson, was shot twice, once in the head and once in the heart.

The children's father, Airman Dustin Thorson, is the likely suspect, authorities said.

On Monday, authorities said Thorson killed both the children and himself after having an altercation with his ex-wife, Michelle Thorson.

Brigadier Gen. Lori Robinson also spoke at the press conference.

"It is a fact that Technical Sgt. Thorson was being seen by a mental health professional," Robinson said.

Whetsel stressed that despite the appearances, the investigation has not been concluded and he will not eliminate any suspects.

"Nobody has been eliminated," he said. "We're making sure everything is in its place."
