Minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve, a 16-year-old boy allegedly used a semi-automatic rifle owned by a family member to shoot and kill his parents, sister and a family friend inside the parents' home in a coastal city in New Jersey, the county prosecutor said.
The teen, whose name has not been released, is in police custody in connection with the shooting deaths of his father, Steven Kologi, 44; mother, Linda Kologi, 42; sister, Brittany Kologi, 18; and a family friend, Mary Schultz, 70, who was residing at the Kologi home in Long Branch, New Jersey, according to Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni and a statement from his office.
The teen's brother and grandfather apparently escaped harm. They "thankfully left the home and came out OK," Gramiccioni said at a press conference Monday morning.
Police arrived on the scene shortly after receiving a call from inside the home about shots fired at 11:43 p.m. on Dec. 31, a statement from the prosecutor's office said.
The boy was arrested at the scene without incident, Gramiccioni said.
Boy it sure is a good thing we have that old 2nd Amendment to keep us safe, don't you think?
Just imagine how long it would have taken a teenager in Australia, Germany, or Britain to slaughter his entire family with a kitchen knife or an axe.
Could have taken as long as a half hour, and more of them might have been able to get away.
But not in America by god. When it comes to murder, we have the best tools to make it highly efficient.
