Long Beach, NJ Shooting

A 16-year-old boy is accused of killing his parents, sister and a family friend on New Year’s Eve in the tri-state area.

The youth whose name has not yet been released is being held and charged on allegedly committing four counts of murder and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose in Long Beach, New Jersey. The teen will likely be charged as an adult considering the seriousness of the alleged crime.

Steven and Linda Lokogi, 18-year-old Britney and a family friend Mary Schults, 70, all died at the scene after reports of shots fired were responded to by police on Monday night. The boys brother and grandfather were able to escape the house unharmed.

Fireworks confused the situation as multiple gunshots were fired. A semi-automatic rifle was used to shot the victims and was registered to a family member.
