An autistic teenage schoolboy has been charged with murdering his father, mother, sister and his grandfather’s partner just minutes before New Year.

Scott Kologi,16, used a semi-automatic rifle to kill his parents, Steven and Linda Kologi, his 18-year-old sister, Brittany, and 70-year-old Mary Schultz at their Long Branch home, New Jersey. Kologi’s brother and grandfather Adrian were at the house at the time of the attack but escaped unharmed.

Police received a 911 call about the shooting at 11.43pm on Sunday from inside the house, where the four victims were later found dead.

Neighbour Sergio Diaz, 41, told how he heard the gunfire, saying: “I went out to get a few beers off the porch and I heard pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. I heard like 10 shots.”

The shooter’s grandmother, Carole Kologi-Zawacki, broke down in tears when she heard of the killings.

“Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God,” Kologi-Zawacki, 66, said from her Florida home.

Her husband, Gregory Zawacki, 63, said the suspect is autistic. He added that they didn’t know they had a gun in the house.

Kologi was charged with four counts of murder and a weapons offence.

Walter Montelione, Linda Kologi’s cousin said: “The Kologis were very caring, loving people and always looking to do fun things with their kids.”

Speaking of Scott, he said: “He was a good kid. He was a little, you know, slow with learning disabilities, but he knows right from wrong.”

Neighbours and friends said the teen had special needs, did not attend regular public schools and was cared for by his mum.

      This is a very sad story a gun should of never been where he could get his hands on it. With his condition he’ll never fully understand what he has done to his family as well as himself. Prayers for the family 😔

    I can’t understand how that gun was were he can get it ..
    it should of been under lock and key ..
    not because he was disable put just BECAUSE it is the right thing to do…
    that poor kid maybe he was playing one of those horrible game that us PARENT are letting our kids play in THESES days,first and just wanted to react what was taught to him.
    Now he will have to suffer
    1 ) because the gun was easy access
    2) because he probably thinks it was a game…
    and they are just going to get up and he can probably play again..
    Not knowing he killed them.
    3)dont have and more mother,father, sister and grandmother..
    4) SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE LOCKED UP!
    5)BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS ALRIGHT TO LEAVE A GUN AROUND THE HOUSE WHERE ANYONE COULD OF KILLED THIM.
    I WILL HAVE THIS BOY IN MY PRAYERS…AND THE FAMILY MEMBERS.
    THIS IS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR THE WORLD TO SEE…

    With his condition a gun should have never been left where he could get his hands on it. It’s sad how many killing are on the news by the hour, day & month. With his condition he’ll never fully realize how much damage he has really done. Prayers for the family 😔
