A 16-year-old is in custody after a horrific shooting just before midnight New Year's Eve in a Jersey Shore town. The boy will be charged with four counts of murder and a weapons offense.

The boy's parents, Linda Kologi, 42, Steven Kologi, 44, and his sister Brittany Kologi, 18, were all found dead inside, along with Mary Schultz, a 70-year-old friend who lived with them.

A joint investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office and Long Branch Police Department continues, but it appears the 16-year-old boy used a Century Arms semi-automatic rifle to kill his victims. The suspect's brother and grandfather were also at the home, but were not injured in the shooting.

Officials say police recovered a semi-automatic rifle at the home, which was legally owned and registered to the address where the shooting happened.
