A child was reportedly arrested for reportedly shooting to death a mother and her two kids. The three victims were found shot to death last week per an official release.

The arrest was revealed by Attorney General John M. Formella, state police Col. Nathan Noyes and Northfield Police Chief John Raffaelly in connection with the triple homicide case. In Northfield, New Hampshire.

Formella confirmed that the juvenile has been arrested and is facing three counts of first-degree murder. The unnamed child is also facing one count of falsifying physical evidence in the deaths of Kassandra Sweeney and her two sons, Benjamin Sweeney, 4 years old, and Mason Sweeney, one year old on Aug. 3.

It was on a Wednesday when police arrived at the Sweeney residence at about 11:30 a.m. It was here when they discovered the three lifeless bodies.

Beyond the information given, no further details were divulged as of this writing. The name of the arrested child could not be revealed due to juvenile law. It remains unknown if the accused was known to the family and no other identifying factors were given.

“The charges and allegations against the juvenile are merely accusations, and he is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty,” an official statement read.

Sean Sweeney, the husband and father of the two kids was also reportedly cooperative in the course of the investigation.

“He is obviously beyond devastated as a result of these crimes,” senior assistant attorney general Geoff Ward said.

Sweeney thanks people who reached out and supported him, aware that his life would never be the same because of the tragedy.

“They will be forever loved and missed and forever in my heart,” Sean Sweeney stated.

A GoFundMe page has been put up by Kassandra Sweeney’s cousin, Alizabeth Dawson to help Sean Sweeney. So far, it has amassed about $50,000.
