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 like 10 gun shots.”

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

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

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, and did not attend regular public schools and was cared for by his mum.
