2 Atlanta brothers allegedly try to kill parents
This weekend, two sons in Atlanta allegedly tried to kill their own parents, reports 11Alive.
On Saturday morning, Yvonne Ervin called 911, frantic as she explained the situation. She said that her two boys, 17-year-old Cameron and 22-year-old Christopher, were trying to kill her in their Snellville home, while her husband, Zachary, was trying to distract them so that she could call for help.
“[Yvonne Ervin] told the 911 operator that [her husband] had distracted the sons and that she was able to call,” said Gwinnett County Police Sgt. Rich Long. “That was probably the life-saving move from this event.”
Although ultimately Zachary’s actions would save his life and his wife’s, he was hospitalized in critical condition after police arrived; he is expected to survive. “Zachary came out of the garage and collapsed,” said Long. “He had a lot of head and body injuries from blunt force trauma and stab wounds on his back.”
The brothers were charged with felony aggravated assault as well as felony counts of first degree arson after they attempted to cut a gas line in order to burn the house down.
Investigators are still trying to determine the reason for the attack.
“There is no official motive at this point, but there has to be something more to this. I’m sure they didn’t just wake up and decide to kill their parents yesterday,” Long said on Sunday.
