A 16 year old boy has been arrested for shooting and killing his mother, father, sister and a family friend in his Long Branch home last night, according to an announcement by Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.
Steven Kologi, 44; Linda Kologi, 42; Brittany Kologi, 18; and Mary Schultz, 70, of Oakhurst Parkway in Ocean Township were found dead from gunshot wounds when officers of the Long Branch Police Department and the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office arrive at the Kologi home, 635 Wall Street at about 11:45 p.m. Sunday night.
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 teenager was taken into custody without incident, according to Gramiccioni’s announcement.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective Andrea Tozzi, of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 800-533-7443, or Detective Michael Verdadiero of the Long Branch Police Department at 732-222-1000.
