In December 2016, 14-year-old Jacob Remaley called 911 saying his dad killed his mom and little brother in their New Stanton, Pennsylvania home. Once the police arrived, Remaley went to his house, retrieved the gun that killed his family members and proceeded to walk down the street carrying the weapon.
A neighbour was able to talk Remaley into dropping the weapon and talking to police. The boy then confessed that he grabbed his father’s gun, which was located on top of the refrigerator, and shot his mother Dana and little brother Caleb.
Remaley confessed that he would have shot his father, as well, if he were home. The teen’s motive remains yet unknown. He will be tried as an adult for his actions.
