Two boys tried to kill their own parents

In Atlanta, Two brothers are behind the bars and charged with multiple burglaries after they attempted to kill their own parents.

On Saturday morning Yvonne Ervin called 911 and reported that she and her husband Zachary were being attacked in their own house. The malefactors were their own children: 22-years-old Cristopher and 17-year-old Cameron.



Gwinnett Country Police Sgt. Rich Long told CNN: “Yvonne Ervin stated to our 911 operator that her sons were trying to kill her and her husband”. Long said: “(Yvonne Ervin) told the 911 operator that (her husband) had distracted the sons and that she was able to call. That was probably the life-saving move from this event.”

When police arrived in Snellville northeast of Atlanta at the Ervin family home, “Zachary came out of the garage and collapsed. He had a lot of head and body injuries from blunt force trauma and stab wounds on his back.” At the moment, Zachary Ervin was hospitalized in critical conditions but he is expected to survive. Yvonne Ervin has also a blunt force trauma but not as severe as the father.


The sons were immediately arrested. This attack wasn’t the first one. Long said that the sons plotted to burn the home down and they had “introduced natural gas into the house.” In Georgia, 17-year-old are considered adults in criminal cases and they will be tried as adults.

On Sunday, Long said: “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.”
