Mother, Four Children Killed in NYC Stabbing Rampage

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a mother and her four children are the victims of a stabbing rampage at their Brooklyn home.

Authorities say the victims are 37-year-old Qiao Zhen Li, 9-year-old Linda Zhuo, 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo and 1-year-old William Zhuo.

A person of interest has been taken into custody, but no charges had been filed by Sunday morning.

Police say authorities arrived at the scene just before 11 p.m. Saturday and found all five victims unconscious and unresponsive.

Three of the children were pronounced dead at the scene, while another child and the woman were taken to two Brooklyn hospitals, where they were pronounced dead.
