    Five dead, teen charged in Albuquerque shooting

    (CNN) -- A teenage boy faces murder and other charges in the shooting deaths of a man, a woman and three children in a home on the outskirts of Albuquerque, New Mexico, authorities said Sunday.

    Investigators were still combing over the home on the southwestern edge of the city where investigators found the victims Saturday night, said Deputy Aaron Williamson, a spokesman for the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department. It was unclear whether the teenager now in custody is related to the victims, nor would Williamson disclose whether the victims -- who included two boys and a girl -- were related.

    Williamson said each victim had been shot multiple times. Several guns were found inside the home, including a "military-style" rifle he said had been used in the crime.

    The teen is being charged with two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse resulting in death, the sheriff's department said. He was arrested after being questioned at the sheriff's office and is likely to be arraigned on Tuesday, Williamson said.

    Neither the victims' nor the suspect's identities had been released Sunday afternoon.

          It seems most of the recent mass shootings in the United States were by an individual who experienced a recent disappointment in the academic arena. This represents a loss of hope for their future.

          Yesterday one person at the University of Central Florida called the police when he saw his roommate with a weapon. He may have saved many from injury or death. Never think that one person can not do something significant.

          From University of Central Florida - where my son attends. I personally thank the roommate of Mr. Seevakumaran for calling 911:

          "It appears as if Seevakumaran had a larger-scale timeline of violence planned. No individuals were named specifically, and he was acting alone, according to preliminary investigations.

          'Times like today challenge us individually, as an organization, and as a university community,” said UCF President John C. Hitt. “The first test for all of us is whether we are focused on the safety of our community, and I am confident that UCF has passed that test. The safety and welfare of our students, faculty and staff, visitors, and neighbors is UCF’s highest priority. The test of compassion is also very important, and our prayers go to everyone affected by today’s incident.'"

          "May the long time sun
          Shine upon you,
          All love surround you,
          And the pure light within you
          Guide your way on."

          "Where your talents and the needs of the world cross, lies your calling."

          “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
          Mohandas Gandhi

          Be the light that is within.
