A mother and her four young children were killed in a late-night stabbing rampage at their Brooklyn home, and a man has been taken into custody, police said Sunday.
Officers who arrived at the gruesome scene in the Sunset Park section late Saturday found all five victims unconscious and unresponsive, police said.
Two girls, 9-year-old Linda Zhuo and 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the youngest child, 1-year-old William Zhuo. Their brother, 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo, and 37-year-old mother, Qiao Zhen Li, were taken to hospitals, where they also were pronounced dead.
A man identified by police as a person of interest has been taken into custody, but no charges had been filed as of Sunday afternoon. Police said a knife had been recovered at the scene.
