Teen Admits Killing Parents, 4 Others

Six Russian immigrants were found shot dead Monday at a house in a Paris suburb, and authorities said a teenage son confessed to the killings.

Those killed, according to police, were wood merchant Eugene Polevoi and his wife; the parents of Mrs. Polevoi; and another couple who were friends of the family.

Police were alerted before dawn by the Polevois’ 16-year-son, who confessed to the killings and was taken into custody. The teenager had an argument with his parents Sunday night and shot them and the others while they were having tea before bed, police said.

The youth’s 3-year-old halfsister, hidden under blankets, was found unharmed at the house in Louveciennes on the western outskirts of Paris.
