    At least 3 shot in Long Branch — suspect in custody
    by Louis C. Hochman January 1, 2018 1:25 AM

    LONG BRANCH — At least three people were shot in Long Branch late Sunday night or early Monday morning, as most of New Jersey rang in the New Year.

    A law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation confirmed the shootings to New Jersey 101.5 in the early-morning hours Monday, as the investigation in the area of Wall Street remained active. A suspect was in custody, the source said.

    Messages spread quickly on Twitter claiming the shooter used an AK-47 or similar weapon, some citing screenshots of services that transcribe police scanner communications. However, those communications are often based on initial, unconfirmed impressions of emergency incidents. The law enforcement source could not immediately confirm whether those reports were true.

    4 Killed In West Long Branch Shooting On New Year's: Prosecutor
    The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office said the shootings were related to a domestic incident.
    By Patricia A. Miller, Patch Staff | Jan 1, 2018 1:49 am ET | Updated Jan 1, 2018 2:32 am ET

    WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ — Four people were killed in the early hours of the New Year in a shooting in West Long Branch, the Monmouth County prosecutor's office said early Monday.

    The prosecutor's office confirmed reports that had been circulating on Twitter about the shooting, which appears to have happened shortly after midnight.

    NBC4 New York reported the shooter is a 16-year-old and is under arrest, citing unnamed sources.

    Tweets of scanner traffic said the incident happened at a Wall Street address that is within the boundaries of West Long Branch, in a residential area off Norwood Avenue.

    The prosecutor's office said the shooting was believed to be "an isolated domestic incident" and there was no known threat to the public.

    Long Branch shooting: 16-year-old in custody after killing family, friend.

    A 16-year-old male used a semi-automatic assault rifle to shoot to death his parents, sister and a family friend inside his parents' Long Branch home on New Year's Eve, according to Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

    The teenager is in custody and is being charged with four counts of murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, said Gramiccioni.

    The victims were identified as the suspect's father, Steven Kologi, 44; mother Linda Kologi, 42; sister Brittany Kologi, 18; and family acquaintance, Mary Schultz, 70. They were found by police minutes after a 911 call of shots fired.

    Gramiccioni said two other family members, the youth's grandfather and brother, were able to escape the house. Both were unharmed.

    Gramiccioni said "thankfully (they) left the house," and we're "OK."

    Gramiccioni said officials do not have a motive for what set the youth off on a murder spree. He called the incident a "terrible tragedy."

    The suspect used a semi-automatic rifle to shoot his victims and was reportedly taken into custody without incident, said Gramiccioni.

    The rifle was a Century Arms model, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor.

    "The weapon was legally owned and registered to a family member," said Gramiccioni.

    The four victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Gramiccioni said none of the victims were transported to a hospital.

    The youth, who was not named by Gramiccioni, will most likely make his first appearance before a judge on Tuesday.

    Long Branch High School Superintendent Michael Salvatore said the youth did not attend the high school. He did not confirm if Britanny Kologi or the youth's brother attended the school but he said the district would make a statement on Tuesday.

    Gramiccioni said the incident is being treated as an isolated domestic incident and officials have "no reason to believe the public is at any risk."

    I thought such behavior was not permitted in New Jersey. Oh, wait, that was defending yourself in New Jersey.

    "I could never have believed this could have happened. They were all good people," said Carmen Gaudious, a family friend. "I just spoke to Steve three days ago. He looked good. It was cold so we didn't say much. He wished me happy holidays."

    Gaudious said he did not see the 16-year old outside of the house often.

    "I don't know too much about him. He didn't come out that much," Gaudious about the youth accused of murder.


    The four victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Gramiccioni said none of the victims were transported to a hospital.

    So, it's sounding like there were some personal issues with this 16 year old, and he took someone else's legally owned firearm to commit these murders. Where did we hear this before? Oh yeah, in the Sandy Hook school shootings.

    In this communist state of NJ, they'll blame it on the evil "military assault weapon".

    Named:

    Authorities charged 16-year-old Scott Kologi with four counts of murder and a weapons offense.

    "The weapon was legally owned and registered to a family member," said Gramiccioni.

    The teenager is in custody and is being charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose, said Gramiccioni.

    He is being held at Middlesex County Youth Detention Center.

    Family friends said the youth was homeschooled.

    Veronica Mass, 69, of Union Beach said she had known the mother Linda since she was a child. She said Linda pulled Scott out of school in the fourth or fifth grade “because he wasn’t getting along with the kids in school or whatever. He seemed a little slow.”

    Mass said the home instruction appeared to help Scott and she couldn't imagine what happened New Year's Eve that allegedly set him off.

    ‘Special needs’ New Jersey boy, 16, shot dead his parents, sister and a family friend just before New Year, cops say.

    The teenager, who was not identified, was taken into custody by the police and is expected to be charged with four counts of murder, Gramiccioni said.

    A friend of the family claims the boy had unspecified special needs.

    Officials did not say what sparked the outburst, but said that an emergency call had come from within the house.

    “We are investigating this and are confident that it’s a domestic incident, that it’s completely isolated,” Gramiccioni said.

    Prosecutors told NJ.com that the household did not have a history of domestic violence.

    The weapon, which officials described as a Century Arms semi-automatic rifle, was registered to a family member at the house, Gramiccioni said.

    He said the arrest of the 16-year-old was “uneventful.”

    Jake Walls, 18, a neighbour and frequent visitor to the Kologis’ house, said that the boy had special needs and was cared for by his mother.

    “But he was fully functional and comprehended what we were saying,” Walls said.

    More details:

    Neighbors told the Press that Scott has autism, and friends and neighbors said the teen was homeschooled by his mother, one of the victims.

    Authorities and family friends are now trying to piece together why the youth allegedly turned a weapon on his family.

    Family friends said Scott Kologi was homeschooled.

    Veronica Mass, 69, of Union Beach, said she had known the mother, Linda, since she was a child. She said Linda pulled Scott out of school in the fourth or fifth grade “because he wasn’t getting along with the kids in school or whatever."

    She said he seemed to have an educational disability. Three family friends, including Ronald Pacheco, 43, of Long Branch, said Scott Kologi has autism.

    Neither the prosecutor's office nor the school would confirm any diagnosis regarding the suspect.

    "He had some type of autism. I didn't know what type. He was very secluded," said Pacheco.

    Mass said home instruction appeared to help Scott and she couldn't imagine what happened New Year's Eve that might have set him off.

    Only thing that odd to me is the list of who he killed.
    Both parents, one sister and a family friend? Why stop and not kill everyone else?
    Were those his abusers?

    The rest of them weren't home at the time? It being New Years and all? Maybe the two older boys were away in school or out to a party.. who knows.

    And recently the Governor (?) of New Jersey said all concealed carry owners will be put in jail. Something like that. Let me backtrack and find the thread. Be right back with a link.

    Here is his quote for his state of New Jersey: "People violate our law — we are a state that has decided that we are against concealed carry weapons. We have stronger gun laws. We believe we have made the states safer as that,” Menendez told The Daily Caller Thursday. “They violate our laws, then whatever is the law, and they are found guilty of it, they should pay the consequence.”

    I spent a lot of time in Long Branch in the 60's mostly at the Monmouth Park race track. It was a nice place then but you couldn't pay me enough to go back to Jersey now.

    Jersey Shore town shaken after teen kills four family members in New Year’s Eve shooting: ‘It’s totally out of the blue’

    Updated: Tuesday, January 2, 2018, 12:54 AM

    A New Year's Eve celebration turned into tragedy when an autistic 16-year-old fatally shot his father, mother, sister and his grandfather’s partner at their Jersey Shore home, officials said Monday.

    Scott Kologi used a semiautomatic rifle to kill his parents, Steven and Linda Kologi, his 18-year-old sister, Brittany, and 70-year-old Mary Schulz, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said.

    The suspect opened fire less than 20 minutes before the family would have rung in the new year at their Long Branch, N.J., home, officials said.

    The Century Arms rifle was legally owned and registered to a family member in the home, Gramiccioni said, but he would not identify the person further.

    Police responding to a 911 call found the four victims and arrested the 16-year-old — the youngest of four siblings — without incident.

    “Thankfully it was uneventful,” Gramiccioni said of the arrest at a news conference Monday. “It didn’t require any force.”

    Scott Kologi was charged as a juvenile with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose. He is expected to make an initial appearance in court on Tuesday.

    It’s unclear if the suspect’s case will be elevated to adult criminal court, a spokesman for the prosecutor said.

    Steven Kologi Jr., one of the gunman’s brothers, and their grandfather Adrian Kologi were also in the home at the time of the shooting but escaped injury, officials said.

    “I just wish I could tell all of them how much they meant to me and how much I truly loved each and every one of them because I didn’t do that enough,” Steven Jr. wrote in an Instagram post about his slain family.

    Another sibling was not in the home. The Asbury Park Press identified him as Linda Kologi’s son Jonathon from another relationship.

    Scott Kologi’s grandmother Carole Kologi-Zawacki broke down in tears when she learned of the killings.

    “Oh, my God, Oh, my God, Oh, my God,” Kologi-Zawacki, 66, said from her Bradenton, Fla., home.

    Her husband, Gregory Zawacki, 63, said Scott is autistic.

    “We didn’t know they had a gun in the house,” he said, adding that the Kologis were not gun enthusiasts or hunters.

    Zawacki said his wife had recently spoken to the family by phone and everything seemed normal.

    “You can hear my wife, it was totally a shock,” he said.

    The shooting stunned residents of Long Branch, a middle-class beach town about an hour south of New York City. Police cordoned off the Kologis’ three-family home and the entire block surrounding it.

    Neighbor Sergio Diaz, 41, said he heard the gunfire.

    “I went out to get a few beers off the porch and I heard pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,” he said. “I heard like 10 shots.”

    He said he initially thought the shots were fireworks.

    “Next thing I know, I see the police lights,” he said.

    A neighbor who declined to give his name said Steven Kologi Sr., 44, loved to play and coach baseball.

    “It’s totally out of the blue,” the neighbor said of the shooting. “He’s my son’s baseball coach, for years and years. I was the assistant coach. We’re just stunned.”

    Kologi listed his occupation as a mail carrier in a 2009 bankruptcy filing. Linda Kologi, 42, was collecting unemployment at the time, according to the filing.

    A GoFundMe page to raise money for the Kologi family’s funerals had collected close to $18,000 from 403 donors by early Monday.

    Veronica Mass, 69, whose daughter grew up with Linda Kologi, said Scott was pulled out of school in fourth or fifth grade.

    “He wasn’t getting along with the other kids,” she said. “The kids were making fun of him because he couldn’t read.”

    She said Kologi had her son undergo medical tests and eventually the mom decided to teach him herself.

    Steven Kologi Jr., in his Instagram post, singled out his parents for praise.

    “My New Year’s resolution is to be as great of a parent as my parents were to me,” he wrote.

    “Never once was I without a hot meal or a roof over my head. They made sure Christmas came every year although they struggled financially.”

    His sister, Brittany, was a first-year student at Stockton University in Galloway, N.J., and had recently come home for the holidays.

    She wrote on her Facebook page last month that she was still adjusting to the changes in her life.

    “Coming home as a student is so confusing, like do I unpack?” she wrote. “Do I live out of a suitcase for a month? Do I just leave everything on the floor?”

    Steven Jr. described his sister in his Instagram post as “beautiful and smart.”

    “She just got done with her first semester of college, and was in the process to being great with whatever she chose,” he wrote.

    Two of Brittany’s friends arrived at the tragic scene Monday with flowers.

    “Yellow for friendship,” explained a devastated Victoria Villanueva, 19.

    Villanueva — who learned about her friend’s death in a group text message — broke down in tears after reading a note Brittany wrote her after she graduated high school.

    “Dear Vicki, you graduated. It’s lit. I know it’s not what you wanted but I’m glad you’re not leaving and I get to bother you a little longer,” Brittany wrote.
