NEW STANTON, Pa. (AP) – Police say a 14-year-old Pennsylvania boy shot his mother and 8-year-old brother once each in the forehead as they slept and called 911, insinuating his father did the shooting.

State Police Trooper Stephen Limani says Jacob Remaley called 911 just before 7 a.m. Wednesday, saying his mom and younger brother were dead and his father placed a gun in his bed before leaving the house.

State police say Jacob later told them he took a gun from atop the refrigerator and shot Dana Remaley and Caleb Remaley after his father, David, went to work. Remaley also allegedly told police he would have shot his father, too, had he been home.

Limani says the only indication of a motive is that the teen and his parents weren’t getting along lately.
