A 16-year-old boy allegedly shot his father, mother, sister and a family friend dead at his parents’ home on New Year’s Eve.
Police say he used a semi-automatic rifle in the house in Long Branch, New Jersey around 15 minutes before midnight.
The suspect’s brother and grandfather were home at the time but managed to escape unharmed.
Christopher J. Gramiccioni, Monmouth County prosecutor, said: ‘It’s a terribly tragic incident.’
He identified the deceased as Steven Kologi, 44; Linda Kologi, 42; Brittany Kologi, 18; and Mary Schultz, 70.
The gun was registered to a resident of the property.
Investigations into the alleged murders continue.
