Boy, 14, massacred entire family after discovering his mom was his stepmother
A 14-year-old boy allegedly gunned his entire family down after finding out his mother was not his biological mother, a relative claimed.
Police said Mason Sisk, 14, confessed to killing his father John Sisk, 38, his stepmother Mary Sisk, 35, his half-brothers, Six-year-old Kane and six-month-old Coleson, and his half-sister Aurora, 5, at their home in Elkmont, Alabama on August 2.
Authorities have not yet released a motive, but Masons cousin, Daisy McCarty, told WAFF-TV that Mason learned Mary Sisk was not his biological mother shortly before the shooting.
McCarty also said that Mason had been exhibiting problematic behavior in the months leading up to the shooting, such as burning animals alive and breaking into his school.
Steven Young, spokesman for the Limestone Sheriffs Office, said Mason is currently charged with five counts of juvenile murder, but could later face adult charges.
Police say the teen called 911 on himself after the shooting and told responding officers that he was in the basement of the home when he heard gunshots upstairs.
Young said: The offender called 911…he met deputies in the driveway and told them he had been in the basement of the home and heard gunshots from the main level of the home upstairs.
He continued: He said he ran out the door and there was very little other information given.
According to Young, discrepancies were found in his statement and when officers confronted the teen, he admitted to shooting the five family members.
The teen then reportedly helped officers find a handgun that he tossed on the side of the road near the home. Authorities later said that the handgun was in the home illegally.
