An unnamed 17-year-old in Reston, Virginia, has been charged with two counts of murder after allegedly murdering his girlfriend’s parents, according to The New York Times. The teen is currently recovering from life-threatening injuries from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The victims, Scott Fricker and his wife Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, were killed in their own home.
