A teenager in New Jersey was taken into police custody after his parents, sister and a family acquaintance were found dead inside the family's home late on Sunday, the Monmouth County prosecutor said in a statement on Monday.

The suspect, who has not been named, was arrested without incident, the statement said.

The 16-year-old killed his father Steven Kologi, 44, mother Linda Kologi, 42, sister Brittany Kologi, 18, and family friend, Mary Schultz, 70, of Ocean Township, Gramiccioni said.

Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said that the alleged killer's grandfather and brother were not targeted in the shooting.

"The Kologis were very caring, loving people and always looking to do fun things with their kids", Walter Montelione, Linda Kologi's cousin, told WCBS-TV.

The survey's authors said a number of respondents signalled that they were receiving higher new orders from customers in North America.

Jalen Walls went to school with Brittany Kologi and lives a few blocks away from the home.

Officials say the rifle used in the homicides is registered to someone living in the home.

According to NJ.com, neighbours revealed the boy was autistic. "I can not even describe the type of people they were so just believe me when I say how great they were".

The teen was charged with four counts of murder and a weapons offence on Monday and expected to appear in court on Tuesday, Asbury Park Press reported.

Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office and the Long Branch Police Department have launched a joint investigation into the murders.
