NEW YORK (AP) — A mother and her four young children were killed in a late-night stabbing rampage at their Brooklyn home, and a man has been taken into custody, police said Sunday.

Officers who arrived at the gruesome scene in the Sunset Park section late Saturday found all five victims unconscious and unresponsive, police said.

Two girls, 9-year-old Linda Zhuo and 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the youngest child, 1-year-old William Zhuo. Their brother, 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo, and 37-year-old mother, Qiao Zhen Li, were taken to hospitals, where they also were pronounced dead.

A man identified by police as a person of interest has been taken into custody, but no charges had been filed as of Sunday morning. Police said a knife had been recovered at the scene.

Bob Madden, who lives nearby, was out walking his dog when he saw a man being escorted from the building by police. He was barefoot, wearing jeans, and "he was staring, he was expressionless," Madden said.

Fire department spokesman Jim Long said emergency workers responded just before 11 p.m. to a 911 call from a person stabbed at the residence in Sunset Park, a working-class neighborhood of adjoining two-story brick buildings with a large Chinese community.

Neighbor May Chan told the Daily News it was "heartbreaking" to learn of the deaths.

"I always see (the kids) running around here," Chan said. "They run around by my garage playing. They run up and down screaming."

Jealous butcher killed mom, 4 kids because they had ‘too much’

They had “too much.”

The maniac who butchered a Brooklyn mom and her four young kids confessed that he did it because he was jealous of their way of life, a police source told The Post on Sunday.

“The family had too much. Their income (and) lifestyle was better than his,” the source said.

The bloody suspect was caught holding the kitchen knife he used during the Saturday night rampage inside the Sunset Park apartment where he had been staying with the victims, the source added.

The unidentified killer was nabbed as he fled out the front door by two detectives who happened to be investigating a robbery pattern nearby when they heard a radio report about a domestic dispute involving a knife and responded to the scene, the source said.

Inside, cops found a house of horrors in which all five victims were hacked to death and one — a 1-year-old boy — was decapitated, the source said.

The as-yet unidentified suspect is a cousin of the dead woman’s husband and a transient with a Chicago address who arrived at their home about a week ago, police sources said.

He showed “no remorse” when he confessed both on video and in writing, a source said. But he became violent at one point during questioning at the 66th Precinct station house, punching a detective while cuffed to a table by one of his hands, a source said.

Earlier, he also threw a pair of eyeglasses at a sergeant who serves as a Chinese-language interpreter, then kicked the table and knocked the sergeant to the ground, the source said.

Police have identified the victims as mother Qiao Zhen Li, 37, and her children: William Zhuo, 1; Kevin Zhuo, 5; Amy Zhuo, 7; and Linda Zhuo, 9.

The mom’s sister was also in the apartment at the time, but wasn’t attacked and called 911, cops said.

A distraught cousin of the dead mom said she had met the suspect in the past, describing him as a “crazy” man who works as a cook who can’t hold down a job and had lived on and off with the victims in the past.

“He’s lazy. He doesn’t work too hard,” Gao Yun, 29, said after stumbling on the crime scene Sunday morning and breaking down in sobs after learning about the Saturday night bloodbath.

“The guy is crazy,” Yun added, twirling her index finger next to her right temple.

If I may be allowed a moment of crudity and crassness:  this exemplifies perfectly why gun control is nonsense and does little or nothing to stop violence.

Came across an interesting fact the other day.

The Wild West was legendary for it's lawlessness. You carried a gun and prayed you could outdraw the baddie.

Deadwood is pretty famous for it's gunfights - in it's worst year there were a total of 5 shootings.

Heinlein said it best - an armed society is a polite society.

Ming Dong Chen, 25, an illegal alien from China, was nabbed as he fled out the front door by two detectives who happened to be investigating a robbery pattern nearby when they heard a radio report about a domestic dispute involving a knife and responded to the scene, the source said.

I saw that and wondered.  Is it an oriental neighborhood?

Might have been called in to translate.

He probably was called upon to translate, the perp being an illegal immigrant who hadn't bothered to learn English, and all.

It is unusual that the article described the race of the perp. Had this been done by a Black person, they would have at least delayed saying anything about race. Had this been done by a Muslim, not only would we not know his race, but they wouldn't even report his name.


What this tells me, is that apparently Asians are not in the 'protected class' category.

This Sunset Park neighborhood is where I used to hang out when I was a young teen. I bowled at a center near The 66th precinct police station and my girlfriend lived down the block. My buddy's dad used to joke about how bowling was a great sport. He said it took kids off the streets and put 'em in the alleys.

I loved to bowl.  Was in our company league for years.

A lot of great memories there, hanging out on Friday nights in the parking lot of that bowling alley or cruising the avenue in my friend's orange VW bug detailed with sunflowers and rainbows, music blaring on the radio.
