(Newser) – New York City police say a mother and her four children are the victims of a stabbing rampage at their Brooklyn home. Authorities say the victims are 37-year-old Qiao Zhen Li, 9-year-old Linda Zhuo, 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo and 1-year-old William Zhuo. A person of interest has been taken into custody, but no charges had been filed by this morning. Police say authorities arrived at the scene just before 11pm last night and found all five victims unconscious and unresponsive.

Three of the children were pronounced dead at the scene, while another child and the woman were taken to two Brooklyn hospitals, where they were pronounced dead. Adjoining two-story brick buildings sit on a tree-lined block in the working-class neighborhood where the stabbings occurred. 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." (Read more Brooklyn stories.)
