An amber alert is over and 6-year-old Decklan Connor was found safe in Lewisville, Texas. 

The boy's father, Robert Leroy Connor III, is in custody.

Police tracked Connor III to a hotel in Lewisville. A SWAT team surrounded the hotel and attempted to contact him. Officers say Connor III was asleep inside. 

Police said they attempted to contact him via phone but were not successful.  Officers then used a public address system to talk to him and they think that woke him up and he came out of the room and was taken into custody.

The Osage County Sheriff's office issued an amber alert for 6-year-old Decklan Connor Tuesday night.

Deputies believe his father, Robert Leroy Connor III, shot and killed his mother, Deborah Connor, in a Sand Springs home over a money matter, then took the boy. They say a 10-year-old, believed to be Decklan's brother, was also in the home at the time.

After the shooting officials say he ran to a neighbor's home, and the neighbor called 911. The 10-year-old is now with investigators.
