GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — Channel 2 Action News has obtained law enforcement radio communications recorded as officers arrived at a home where two sons are accused of trying to kill their parents.
As officers arrived they knew there were at least two weapons in the house, according to the communications.
Dispatchers said they could hear at least one of two parents inside being beaten and pleading for help.
The mother and father would survive the attack, but suffer serious injuries.
"The female upstairs has been hit in the head with a rifle multiple times. No gunshot wound though," the officer said on the recordings.
When Gwinnett County police arrived on Forbes Trail Saturday morning, they could quickly see the violence of an apparent planned rampage by two sons, Cameron, 17, and Christopher, 22.
One of the sons would later break into the bedroom and attack his mother again. Her husband remains hospitalized with serious head wounds.
Investigators say the sons' first attempts to drug their parents and then blow the house up with a natural gas leak failed.
Gwinnett County police say the boys surrendered when police arrived.
