A local business man is dead after two suspects break into his Northeast Oklahoma home.

Officials say they found 64-year-old Sam Sanders dead after responding to a 911 call near Fairland, Oklahoma around 4:30 this morning. The caller was Sanders' 20-year-old grandson. The grandson told authorities two men came in wearing camouflage clothing, and tied him up. He also reported the suspects tied up Sanders' wife, and shot Sanders, killing him.

This is the second home invasion in Ottawa County in the past week. But officials say they don't believe the two incidents are related. Authorities have not confirmed if the intruders took anything from the home.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has moved in to assist the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.
