2 suspects arrested in quadruple homicide in Troy, New York

Police in Troy, New York, released photos on Thursday of two children and two adult women who were killed in a "horrific" quadruple homicide.

Troy police Chief John Tedesco had assured the public there was no imminent danger because it appeared the murders were not a random act and the victims may have been targeted for undisclosed reasons.

According to detectives, Shanta Myers, 36, two of her three children, 11 and 5, and her girlfriend Brandi Mells, 22, were found with their hands and ankles bound and their slit throats on Tuesday.

"After being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this". Having been in law enforcement for almost 50 years, Tedesco says the crime scene was unlike any he's witnessed.

Myers' sister, Shakera Symes, had implored any potential witnesses to speak with authorities to find "the person who has destroyed us, emotionally, mentally", according to the Times Union.

'I'm scared to go to the corner store, ' he told reporters. "I'm not sure if they're coming for me next", the 15-year-old said.

Tedesco said that he's "confident" there will not be any more arrests in this case.

The four bodies were discovered the day after Christmas by a property manager asked to check on the family.

"After being in business for nearly 42 years I can't describe the savagery of a person like this", Todesco said.

Jackie Robinson Sr., a pastor at Oak Grove Baptist Church in Troy, told the Times Union that there are "certainly reasons to be fearful".

Jeremiah, the family said, dreamed of playing for the Boston Celtics.

A little closure possibly provided for Khalif Coleman, the nephew of Shanta Myers.

The Troy Boys & Girls Club is also raising money through a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of funeral services for the victims.
