A teenager is in custody after fatally shooting two adults and three children near an Alburquerque home Saturday night.

Authorities say that the boy, believed to be 15-years-old, was charged for murder and other offenses in connection to the shooting.

Huffington Post reports:

The victims’ identities haven’t been released, and the boy’s motive and connection to the five victims weren’t immediately known. Williamson said investigators were trying to determine if the victims were related.

“We are trying to identify the victims,” Bernalillo County sheriff’s spokesman Aaron Williamson said.

Each victim suffered more than one gunshot wound.

Investigators also were seeking to determine who owned several guns that were found at the home, one of which was a semi-automatic military-style rifle.

Authorities weren’t releasing the name or age of the teenager accused in the attack or details of any conversation that he had with investigators.

He was booked on two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse resulting in death.
