ELKMONT, Ala. (AP) — A mass funeral is set for five members of a north Alabama family who were shot to death in their home, allegedly by a teenage relative.
A funeral service is scheduled for noontime Saturday for a husband, wife and three young children who were killed in Elkmont.
The couple’s 14-year-old son is charged with murder in the shootings, and The Associated Press isn’t using their names to protect his identity since he is a juvenile.
The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office says the youth admitted to shooting his father, stepmother and three siblings.
The coroner, Mike West, says a preliminary autopsy report shows each person died of a single gunshot wound.
The teenage suspect remains in custody, and there’s no indication he will be allowed to attend the funeral.
