KITTRELL, N.C. — Twin 11-year-old brothers were charged Friday with shooting their father to death as he bounded up a staircase after hearing shots fired at his wife, authorities said.
The boys, whose names were not released by Vance County investigators, then allegedly shot their 16-year-old sister and waited for police to arrive.
"It was a terrible, bloody mess. There was a lot of blood all through the house," sheriff's Capt. John C. Shockley said.
The twins face juvenile charges of murder and two counts each of assault with a deadly weapon. A juvenile court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
