The Indianapolis teen accused of gunning down five family members, including a pregnant woman, has been hit with murder charges.

The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office filed six murder charges Thursday against the 17-year-old suspect — identified as Raymond Ronald Lee Childs III — in connection with the Sunday bloodbath, WISH-TV reported.

Childs was also charged with attempted murder and carrying a handgun without a license.

The teen allegedly shot dead his parents, Kezzie Childs, 42, and Raymond Childs Jr., 42; his two siblings, Elijah Childs, 18, and Rita Childs, 13; and his brother’s girlfriend, Kiara Hawkins, 19, and her unborn son at the family’s home, authorities said.

The baby had been due to be born in one week, Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mears said at a news conference Thursday.

A younger brother was critically wounded in the shooting.
