This story is tragic, wild, and heartbreaking.
Six people are now dead after a 17-year-old went on a rampage after being punished for sneaking out of the house the night before.
The teen murdered his family after being disciplined by his father.
Thankfully, one family member survived – a 15-year-old sibling who begged for his life and even offered $40 to his brother if he’d spare him. The young teen finally escaped out of the side door of the house.
The murders happened in Indiana, and the suspect’s name is Raymond Childs III. He’s being charged as an adult.
Childs is accused of killing his family members 42-year-old Kezzie Childs, 42-year-old Raymond Childs, 18-year-old Elijah Childs, 13-year-old Rita Childs, 19-year-old Kiara Hawkins, and Baby Boy Hawkins, the unborn child of Kiara Hawkins.
According to court records, the key witness to the horrific violence appears to be the suspect’s younger brother.
Running out of his own home on Adams over the weekend, prosecutors believe a 15-year-old boy begged his own brother to spare his life.
According to the affidavit, the victim pleaded with his older sibling, “I can give you forty dollars, please don’t kill me.”
Despite being shot in the leg and arm, the 15-year-old survived and told police his older brother was responsible for shooting his family.
“It’s horrible. That’s your initial reaction, but then you think what can we do to help,” said Marion County prosecutor Ryan Mears.
The surviving teen recalled hearing his sister yell, “Raymond shot Elijiah!” He also told police he heard another gunshot before his father said, “I’m sorry, Raymond. I love you.”
After hearing shots fired in the house, Childs’ brother escaped through a side door. He said Childs chased him down and shot him in the leg and arm. The 15-year-old brother believes Childs intended to shoot him in the head but missed.

Childs fled the scene of the crime and was later apprehended by police at a relative’s home.
Due to his age, he cannot face the death penalty.
This is a real shame because if anyone deserves the death penalty, it’s this guy.
