Two brothers from the Atlanta-area have been arrested and charged with multiple felonies after attempting to murder their parents.
Yvonne Ervin called 911 Saturday morning and reported that she and husband Zachary were being attacked in their own home.
The perpetrators, she told police, were their own children: 17-year-old Cameron and 22-year-old Christopher.
Gwinnett County Police Sgt. Rich Long said the mother told the 911 operator that her husband had distracted the boys and that’s how she was able to call. The site continues:
When police arrived at the Ervin family home in suburban Snellville northeast of Atlanta, “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.” Zachary Ervin was hospitalized in critical condition. Long said he is expected to survive.
The sons also plotted to burn down the house. Both Cameron and Christopher are being charged with aggravated assault and arson in an attack against their parents. As of yet, there is no motive behind the attack.
