A couple was killed by a teenager who was stranded at the side of the road.

Police in Montana, were called around 10:30 a.m., after an 18-year-old man gunned down family members who stopped to help him.

Jesus Deniz from Worland, Wyoming, was in Big Horn County, Montana, when he ran out of gas at the side of the road.

A family stopped to try to help him on Wednesday.

They went to a station to get gas, but it was closed. When they returned, Deniz opened fire, killing the couple and wounding their daughter.

The FBI confirmed that two people were killed and a third wounded by gunfire in Pryor.

Deniz was arrested hours after the shooting in Wyoming, said FBI spokesman Todd Palmer.

Bryce Hugs said that his aunt, Tana Shane, 50, spotted Deniz in need of help. She first picked up her husband, Jason, 52, and daughter 24-year-old Jora, and then returned to help Deniz.

The couple was pronounced dead and their daughter was taken to a hospital. The couple left behind seven children, five daughters and two sons.
