A 14-year-old boy has confessed to killing all 5 members of his family. The shootings occurred about 10:30 p.m. Monday in the tiny town of Elkmont, Alabama.

Police responding to the small one-story home found 3 people deceased and two others suffering from gunshot wounds. An adult and 2 minors were dead at the scene. Another adult and a minor were airlifted to a hospital, where they later died.

The boy initially told a dispatcher he heard gunshots upstairs. He later confessed to shooting his father, stepmother, and three siblings.

The teenager called 911, saying he was in the basement and heard gunshots upstairs, according to WHNT-TV. The teen's grandmother said that she recently lived in the family's basement," but she moved out of the home. She said the deceased were her only family in the area.

Family members of the stepmother were distraught at the scene, according to the television station.

The sheriff said the boy was assisting in the search of the 9mm handgun that he threw away after the shooting.

The boy is being held in a juvenile detention center in Elkmont, a town with a population of 500 residents, about a 45 minute drive northwest of Huntsville, Alabama.

The sheriff said it is unclear if the boy will be charged as an adult.

    The world we live in.....

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong

    Someone pissed him OFF. Sheesh.
    Whole family is gone.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Did they take him to Burger King and give him his meds before he got to the station? I'm sure he wasn't tasered, choke slammed, or put in a head lock before being cuffed. Hell did they cuff him or did he ride in the passenger seat to the station? Why didn't they release his name like the other minors? Chile where's my sage before I finish reading this write up

  • tintin

    hmmmm is he white??

  • tintin

    serious question!! do you guys believe in the right to bear arms?? how to you feel about guns?
    I'm in Canada so we aren't allowed to mess with guns like that.

  • Ni Ni

    Wonder what they did to him?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I assume he is because they haven't released his name and/or picture. He is even in an undisclosed juvenile facility. So it sounds like he has the complexion for the protection. You know if the roles were reversed we'd know everything including the blood type by now.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    That's my question too.

  • Facts and Receipts

    The sheriff said it is unclear if the boy will be charged as an adult. <<< I vote give lil bro the big needle. At 14 you MORE THAN know better. And to assist in looking for the gun? Gone head and put this dude down.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    They're protecting him already I bet his azz ends up in a mental institute on more meds

  • Bree

    Gosh!? What happened that he killed his own father and siblings!? He initially lied to cover up something, so I'm inclined to think he lost it due to an argument with his father and his wife. And where the heck did he get a gun from!?

    Where is his biological mother!? And what does she have to say?

  • Phillybruh

    I think that may very be the reason he killed his father. I don't want my kids afraid of me.

  • Bree

    Same thing I've asked

  • Phillybruh

    I had a healthy respect for my mother, but I was not afraid of her. Nor did she want us to be. I did what was asked of me not out of fear but out of respect.

    You could be right in the situation where he couldn't get away with something. Not enough details to know.

  • Bree

    I believe we should all have the right to protect ourselves if pursued. Should we be allowed to carry openly, that's up to the people. My husband and I have a weapon for protection purposes only. And I plan on taking classes to get licensed to carry. The streets aren't safe and these ninjas don't care that their bullets have no name on them.

  • Pamela

    Nothing that warrants him killing them. He was born evil and would probably have killed others at some point in his life.Just evil.

  • Kimberly King

    Elkmont, AL with a population of 500..... he's definitely white... and crazy. But what else is new? I'm not trying to hear a damn thing about his mental health. Charge this animal with the death penalty. He was a mass shooter in the making. Just practicing on his family. Tragic !

  • Kimberly King

    Exactly !

  • Phillybruh

    Well at least he aimed his anger at the appropriate people and not as his innocent classmates.

  • https://nylapoprush.com/home twitch.tv/NylaPop

    Smh I have nothing on this "In Today's Pale Folk News" post except I love how media everywhere is accurately reporting this lil demented serial killer as a 14-year old BOY whereas when an innocent Black boy of the same age or even younger is gunned down by police for strolling while Black, the media loves to use words like "Black MAN", "young Black MAN", "Black TEEN" and even "THUG".

    Anyways queue the mental illness, bullying history, bad parent sob stories instead of digging up that one time he posted a weed meme on Instagram or threw up an alleged gang symbol that was really a peace sign. https://media3.giphy.com/media/2yvOfR7qZ3xO9u6DMl/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

  • Phillybruh

    The adults in my house each have one, however neither of our children even know we have it or where they are kept. I believe you should be able to own a reasonable firearm.

  • Kimberly King

    Mhmm touché. But still ... this is terrible !

  • Li-Wright

    Drugs and entitlement?

  • Li-Wright

    Drugs and entitlement.....that's all I got.

    We know lice demons...they the only ones allowed to be crazy.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Speaking of, I'm about to purchase my first weapon. Something in my spirit is telling me these yt folks are about to start really acting up. I was leaning towards a shotgun, but Idk.

    Yes, I have firearm experience but it's been a long time since I've been to a range/held a weapon.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Adds lice demons to vocabulary.

  • the guest

    That boy is a sociopath. No ordinary teen angst and anger goes as far as killing their entire family. The kid is severely unwell and the father and stepfather probably didn’t get him mental help.

  • Phillybruh

    Again, you don't what he was subject to in that house.

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • Bree

    Probably so. This is the number one reason I don't want to raise my children as privileged although we have the means. Spare the rod, spoil the child

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm against children being charged as adults. Science has confirmed on multiple occasions that their brains aren't even fully developed. Then they end up prison being raped by grown azz men.

    Most importantly is the fact that little black boys are the ones that disproportionately find their case being transferred to adult court. I cant support it on that principle alone.

  • gellie

    Get on over to the range. They got all kinds of different weapons to try out. You just gotta pay for the ammo.

  • Beloved Jordan

    No picture...must be white

  • Facts and Receipts

    Whatever it was didnt involve his siblings. I have a 14 year old. Even if I was beating her ass or she was getting God forbid hurt somehow, she would NEVER lay a finger on her sibs or little cousins.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Imma need mine to fear me.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Shotgun is great for home protection but for everyday, my husband leans towards revolvers for women because it wont jam. I dont like my .380 because of the fit in my hand. I want 9 mil that can fit nicely in my hand and bag

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Crazy has no colour. That's for sure.

  • Phillybruh

    Now that I agree with, the siblings should have been left out!

  • the guest

    THIS.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ?????

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Appropriate people? He killed a 6 month old...

  • Cricket404

    Did he play those violent video games?.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    His bio mom died years ago

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Mass family killings and Mass stranger killings.. White males between the ages of 18 and 45 are it!

  • Phillybruh

    He kept that in his house. I don't know the details nor do I really want to, all I know is he didn't take it to school.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    No relevance at all!

  • Kimberly King

    Or to Walmart, the gas station or the other places they like to let off rounds. Here in Texas we had a white man driving around randomly killing people. It's like mass shootings are becoming the popular thing to do. It's ridiculous.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Me too

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Crazy still has no colour...

  • Kimocha

    Well I looked up the town that this took place in just to get an idea of the demographics and it shows that it happened in Elkmont Alabama and according to the most recent ACS, the racial composition of Elkmont, AL is:

    White: 86.10%
    Black or African American: 11.21%
    Native American: 1.35%
    Two or more races: 1.35%

    So 9 times outta 10 this was a yt 14 yr old... But either way it go, they need to charge that crazy MF as an adult!... Periodt!!!

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    I have a compact 9mm for my car and a .40 for home. Both are great for a woman. Practice shooting at the range as soon as you get it to become comfortable with weight and recoil, if any.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    The story about that Odessa murderer and the headline read “white man shot at people killing 7 and wounding 21 etc” and folks in the comments section were MAD because they mentioned he was white? News media hardly EVER mention race when it comes to crimes committed by white males! I was like “these people are delusional!”

  • Phillybruh

    I think she's saying this kind of crazy does.

  • Truth ???

    First thing I thought was "family secrets" made him snap or either he comes from a family of criminals.

  • Dee

    Sound about white (right)

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • ClaireHuxtable

    *tears* My heart breaks. He doesn't realize what he's done. 5 people whose story is over.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Damn a shotgun tho? You tryna blow they ass straight away from the whole earth sis. You not playing.

    Thats what those kids do! Have no regard for life!

  • Facts and Receipts

    Maybe he was listening to rap music too.

  • Truth ???

    How bout both!!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Thanks Philly ?

  • Truth ???

    Yep, 9mm jam but revolvers will never give you that problem.

  • Facts and Receipts

    That whole area of North Bama is predom. white. Black Bama is B'Ham, Montgomery, or Mobile. Soon as I saw Huntsville metro area mentioned I knew what time it was.

  • Renee26

    Yes charge him as an adult.... Duh

  • gellie

    I watched one of the live pressers soon after the shooting. A reporter had asked, 'What can you tell us about this suspect?' The very white sheriff completely volunteered that the shooter was a 'white male in his 30s.' He said it right there in a press conference, on live TV and streaming. Baby them lice demons that stay up in the comments sections were BIG MAADDD.

  • Renee26

    He's 14 not 4... He knows what he did (unless they come back and say he was legally retarded)

  • Lucky8

    Where was the good guy with the gun?

  • Renee26

    Yes ma'am... That's what I have at the crib. Ion want a mf to get up and come towards me.

  • Renee26

    Same

  • Lucky8

    They probably took him to the range at least twice a week They did a good job teaching him target practice, because he got them all. Carry on folks, and wait for the next shootout tomorrow in the USA.

  • Vonn

    Deep fry his arse, no batter. No need for a trial.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    At 14, you're still st00pid and think you can have a do-over. Most act out of emotion with no long term processing. Yet do I think he should be tried as an adult? Yes.
    Young or old, people simply have to understand that are consequences for every action.

    I doubt the boy is mentally impaired. He's probably just mad, mean and nasty just like a majority of them.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I BET that it is purdy?

  • MsPam

    He committed a adult crime so he can be treated like one.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Juvenile murderers go to jail...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    The majority of crimes are "adult" crimes... ?????

  • Applebootay

    FOR WHY THO???!!!

  • Renee26

    Same here

  • MsPam

    John and Mary Sisk, father and step mother. Yes they were clear people.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I bet she was?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Chile my azz is 40 and still fear that left hook. Nah I ain't playing no games with OG Sugarfoot. She'll tag your azz with anything ...broom, flower pot, stair case,

    :(

  • MsPam

    He had enough sense to call 911 to tell them he killed his family.

  • Truth ???

    Lord have mercy...smh. I wonder what's the back story.

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    They don't put the juvenile offenders in general population with the adults in prison. They're kept separate. Don't ask me how I know... https://media2.giphy.com/media/dCCrtnc5H8YgUKitoq/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

  • GAPeach

    They trained him to kill them. Idiots. Probably wouldn't let him play Fortnite, or some dumb shit. White kids love killing their family over video games. (Maybe that's why they keep trying to use video games as their new, "old" excuse for mass shootings).

  • B.Loveitt

    This White on White mass shooting crime is crazy. He hid his crazy from all 500 of the population or do they all act this way. Seemed normal to them.
    Population of 495 now. SMH

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    I'm just guessing here but they probably treated him differently from the other kids and he felt resentment towards em for it.

  • Nunya Business

    It'll never happen. Skin isn't dark enough.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Im sure they made him clean his room or turn his video game off.. It dont take much for these white kids get upset !!!

  • Nunya Business

    One of the victims was his 6 month old baby brother. Tragic.

  • yvette46

    Need to charge his ass as an adult and throw away the key..

  • jayhawkpride

    Unclear? Well now we know he's white!! lol

  • TheWildChild

    If this was a one-story home, how did he hear gunshots upstairs ????? .... This is very sad and disturbing. I bet little dude prolly was addicted to video games and had his device remove by means of punishment and couldn't cope. I've seen my friends take away electronic devices from their kids only to return it back after a few hours because the bizarre behavior displayed.

  • TheWildChild

    Sounds about ?????....?

    14-year-old killed his family, later confessed- Yep! https://mol.im/a/7422591

  • http://realitytea.com Lady Chatterly’s Lover

    Damn Chi you out here like Quick Draw McGraw in the Wild Wild West.

  • MsSapphire9800

    He will be home by Christmas...he comes all the public defenders...the child was s*xually abuse...has mental issues...physically abuse and not old enough to understand the consequences of what he did. Now if it was Taquan...he will be charged as an adult...he is a thug...murderer and will get an extra 99 yrs for killing the 5 month old baby.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Girly! Did you read about the dude shooting up the football stadium after the Friday night game in Mobile AL?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He'll probably be out by age 21 and they'll seal his criminal record since he's a juvenile. Seven years from now he could be working a regular job, and the person sitting next to him will have no idea they're sitting beside a mass murderer.
    Shouldn't be that way, but that's how it seems to usually work. Personally if it was me I'd give him 30+ years in prison.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames
  • Mr.LeBrickJames
  • Facts and Receipts

    Yep. I still get alerts on all things Bama daily. They installed metal detectors at all high school event places today and tomorrow at all of the Mobile County high schools as a result. They still dont know why the heck he opened fire but had been altercation prior. Crazy and sad as hell.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    So darn crazy because he seems of sound mind because he turned himself in!

  • Facts and Receipts

    I saw that tidbit too. One of the rare ones to be taken alive.

  • Bree

    That's so sad.

  • MistaO

    Probably told him he couldn't play his video game for an hour. These people out here straight up soulless. But then again, he could've been catching all manner of hell in that house.

    People have all kinds of strange s hit going on in their houses....you just never freaking know today...

  • dontgetblocked

    Another domestic white shooting. Nothing to see here.

  • Renee26

    Yes, I believe in upholding the right... I don't fear gun ownership but know that some fools have no business with them and I hope to never be in a situation where me or a loved on gets caught in the crossfire of some idiot.

  • Renee26

    But for a shorter amount of time. Til they turn 18 or 21... That's a slap on the wrist for offing a whole family

  • chaisun

    Unsure if he will he charged as an adult means highly unlikely in white peoples terms.

  • Renee26

    He knows death is final... Let his ass sit in prison for the rest of his life. Ain't like he has family to come home to. Granny will probably die of a broken heart soon... Sad to say

  • Minx Mosaic

    Did I miss something? How does everyone know this was a white family? Just asking...

  • MsSapphire9800

    The News...WHNT...some of us do not just read blogs story...we also read & watch real news.

  • Minx Mosaic

    Gotcha! ???

  • Ryan

    "The sheriff said it is unclear if the boy will be charged as an adult."

    If he's black = charged as an adult

    If he's white = declared mentally unstable, no jail time, leaving it up to life and his own sh|tty choices to take him out

  • Ryan

    Ok, now I see it was white. And killed a baby too?? Fvckin pig people. KNOW he's going to hell, "mentally unstable" or not.

  • Disgustd

    If there's no pic immediately & no inter-generational case study of the whole sordid family history, then you KNOW they white. Guaranteed.

  • Disgustd

    No pic & no case study on family dysfunction and criminal history (no matter how inconsequential)...remember when the black child fell into a gorilla enclosure at the zoo a few years ago and the cesspool media brought up the FATHER's criminal record?)...Patterns and precedent..that's how you know this psycho is white. And the law of averages.

  • Disgustd

    White crazy is normalized. Let us not forget what whites used to do for Friday/Saturday evening entertainment...http://www.withoutsanctuary.org..and no doubt showed up for Sunday morning service with nary a conscience. We should be happy that they have now turned to devouring their own. Since damn near everything in America is segregated, they don't live in as close proximity to us. Be grateful instead of wanting to be up in their faces and spaces.

  • Disgustd

    And surprisingly, they spilled all the tea on the father. What's good enough for the goose should be good enough for the gander. So...let's see if they'll blame the father's criminal record on the wayward son?

  • Disgustd

    White male's sense of entitlement and privilege does though. That's at the crux of all these shootings.

  • Disgustd

    Probably not even any illicit drugs..white privilege and entitlement is drug enough.

  • Disgustd

    The irony is that his step-mom worked in special education. You would think she would have seen the signs of behavioral issues..but maybe they did and it was just too little, too late.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    You're saying he was entitled to kill his own family?

  • Minx Mosaic

    Wow, you're so on point!

  • SpiceGirl
  • TransMichelle

    Funny enough, people on here are wondering whether this boy who killed family members was white. However, nothing has been mentioned on this blog about the black boy that recently shot 9 people:

    "Mobile police have arrested a teenager in connection to a shooting at Ladd Peebles Stadium on Friday night that left 9 people injured, 5 of those are in critical condition.
    Deangelo Parnell, 17, is charged with nine counts of attempted murder, according to a spokesperson for the Mobile Police Department. He turned himself in to police early Saturday morning. Parnell is a student at LeFlore High School.
    The shots were fired in the concourse of the stadium near the end of the LeFlore vs. Williamson High School football game. Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste told reporters that those injured ranged in age from 15-47."

    Just saying....when it comes to shooting...all types of people are going buck-wild. TOODLES

    They already said he had just found out the woman raising him isn't his real mother. This goes along with Trump calling White Nationalist Terrorist "mentally ill".

  • Ryan

    Damn. Well there you go, "suddenly" he didn't know that murder was bad. Even though there have literally been dozens of shows - probably hundreds worldwide - and movies that had this in their plot and the kids never killed anybody.

    Exactly! You get angry, break some stuff, run away, write a hate letter, ask about your real mother but you don't kill your family.
