Bullet-ridden bodies of two adults and three children were found in side an Albuquerque home Saturday night.
A teenage boy was arrested and is being charged with two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse resulting in death, according to Deputy Aaron Williamson of the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department.
The name of the boy has not been released, and his motive and connection to the victims was not immediately known, Williamson said.
Authorities responded to the family home Saturday around 9:15 p.m., and found multiple casualties. An assault-type rifle, along with several other weapons, were recovered at the scene.
The victims, including an adult male and female, two girls, and one boy, appeared to have suffered “multiple gunshot wounds,” Williamson said.
