SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – Sarasota County deputies say a 16-year-old stabbed his mother and his 14-year-old brother multiple times late Wednesday night.
The teen has been identified as Gust Ramgren. His mother Melissa Ramgren and his brother Charles Ramgren fell victim to his crime.
The Massachusetts family had been vacationing this week on Siesta Key.
At around 9 p.m., Melissa called 911 saying that her son stabbed her and her other son, Charles, and took off.
Officials say soon after he fled, a nearby resident called 911 saying that Gust was in their yard asking for help. The teen said his family had just been stabbed.
According to the Probable Cause Affidavit, once deputies arrived they found Charles saying he thought he was going to die. Charles also asked why his brother would do this.
Melissa was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital for serious injuries and 14-year-old Charles was flown to All Children’s Hospital. He is in critical but stable condition and is expected to survive.
During an interview with authorities, Gust admitted to the crime. He’s been charged with attempted second-degree murder. The investigation is ongoing.
