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 Jan. 1. Officials arrived on the scene after receiving a 911 call about shots fired at the house around 15 minutes before midnight, according to a news release from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office. The boy will be charged with four counts of murder and a weapons offense. He’s expected to make a court appearance on Jan. 2.
The boy’s parents, Linda Kologi, 42, Steven Kologi, 44, and his sister Brittany Kologi, 18, were all found dead inside, along with Mary Schultz, a 70-year-old friend who lived with them. The teen’s grandfather and brother, however, were not targeted and were able to leave the residence unharmed. The boy, who officers didn’t immediately name, was taken into custody without incident, but the motive and circumstances surrounding the tragic event are still unclear. Investigators think that a “Century Arms semiautomatic rifle” was used in the fatal event, and the gun was registered to someone who lived in the home.
