In a shocking incident, a 14-year-old boy from Miramonte, California, has been taken into custody for allegedly killing his parents and critically injuring his younger sister. The Fresno County Sheriff’s Department has charged the teenager with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.
Authorities responded to the boy’s distress call on Wednesday evening, reporting that his family had been attacked by an intruder. Upon arriving at the scene, law enforcement discovered the deceased bodies of the boy’s parents, identified as Lue Yang and Se Vang, both aged 37. Additionally, they found the boy’s 11-year-old sister suffering from serious injuries.
The injured girl was swiftly transported to a hospital, where she underwent surgery. Thankfully, her condition is reported to be improving, and she is expected to survive the tragic ordeal, according to the sheriff’s office. However, upon further investigation, detectives concluded that the boy’s account of the events did not align with the evidence found at the scene. It was later revealed that the teenager had fabricated the story and was responsible for the alarming attack on his family.
Sheriff John Zanoni, during a press conference, revealed that the boy’s seven-year-old brother was also present in the house during the violent attack but fortunately remained unharmed. He is now in the care of other family members.
The motive behind the gruesome attacks remains unclear as the investigation continues. Sheriff Zanoni highlighted the prevalence of readily available weapons in rural areas like Miramonte, emphasizing that it is not uncommon for individuals to possess firearms and knives for self-defense or hunting. Tragically, this time, these weapons fell into the hands of a 14-year-old who used them in an extremely violent manner.
Authorities are diligently working to uncover more details surrounding this tragic incident. Due to the involvement of minors, the identities of the children will not be disclosed.
