According to Small, the attacks occurred in three bedrooms on the second story of the house, leaving a gory scene. He stated he discovered two bloodied knives with 7-inch blades in the house.

“One of the blades, that’s all metal, is actually fractured, which goes to indicate how aggressively these individuals were being stabbed,” Small added.

The suspect’s name and the identities of the six family members have not been released by police.
