This is heartbreaking. A 16-year-old boy from New Jersey is being held in police custody after four people were shot to death with an automatic rifle in their Long Branch home on New Year's Eve, authorities said on January 1.
The police went to the home in Long Branch, a seaside New Jersey town of about 30,000 people, after a 911 call reporting a shooting. A semi-automatic rifle was recovered at the scene, investigators said.
On arrival, they discovered the suspect's father, mother, sister, and a family friend had all been killed.
Monmouth County prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni told the media that someone inside the home called the police after shots rang out at around 11:43 p.m. The teen's grandfather and brother, however, were not targeted and were able to leave the residence unharmed.
