The teen, who has not been identified, was arrested and charged with four counts of murder, according to CBS News

The victims were identified as Steven Kologi, 44, Linda Kologi, 42, Brittany Kologi, 18, and Mary Schultz, 70, according to the Monmouth County prosecutor. A possible motive was not been disclosed. 

Police responded to a call of shots fired around 11:43 p.m. Sunday. The shooter’s brother and grandfather were also home at the time but were able to escape without injury, investigators said. The Century Arms rifle was legally registered to a resident of the house.

“It’s a terribly tragic incident,” Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni said.
