Teen arrested for murder of family, friend

An older brother of the New Jersey teen who allegedly gunned down his parents and sister on New Year's Eve penned a touching tribute to his slain family members on social media, urging others "to give the ones you love an extra kiss or I love you". Get the horrific details here.

He will be charged with four counts of murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful goal, reported NBC Channel 4.

A 16-year-old boy is in custody after four people were found shot to death inside his family's home in Long Branch, New Jersey. 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. He's expected to make a court appearance on January 2.

"It's a terribly tragic incident" said the Monmouth County Prosecutor.

Among the dead are Steven Kologi, 44, Linda Kologi, 42, Brittany Kologi, 18, and family friend Mary Schultz, 70.

The teen, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, will be charged as an adult with four counts of murder and a weapons charge, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said during a press conference in Long Branch.

The shooter apparently used a Century Arms semi-automatic rifle, the statement said.
