ALBUQUERQUE, NM – What exactly went on behind the four walls of an Albuquerque, New Mexico home is what police are working to find out.

A man, a woman and three children were found shot to death. Police say they found several weapons inside the home, including what they described as an assault-type rifle.

“Our units arrived at the scene at approximately 9:25 p.m. Deputies were able to verify at that time multiple casualties and numerous weapons inside the home,” said Sheriff Dan Houston.

Perhaps the most shocking thing about this homicide is the suspect. Police say a 15-year-old teen is behind the mass murder and that he may even be a family member. He was charged with two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse resulting in death.

No matter what new details police find out, it`ll never make sense as to what would drive someone to commit such a heinous act.
