18-year-old Robert Bever of Broken-Arrow, Oklahoma, who was accused of killing his parents and three siblings, has reportedly given a full confession.

Bever's 13-year-old sister, whose name has not been released, told police that her older brothers were behind her family's murders. She said she was attacked by her older brothers after they had already killed three of their siblings and their parents.

Police aren't sure if a list of the people he planned to kill exists or how many people he planned to murder.

A motive for the killing has yet to be released.

Robert Bever and his 16-year-old brother, who isn't being identified at this time, were both arrested in connection with their family members' deaths.

A silent 911 call on Thursday morning led police to the scene of the crime. When they arrived at the home, they heard moaning so they forced entry. There they discovered five victims who had been stabbed to death, an unharmed 2-year-old girl, and a 13-year-old girl, who was then taken to the hospital in critical condition. She is expected to make a full recovery. 

The 13-year-old girl told police that her brothers were responsible for the attacks. 

Police spotted Robert Bever and his brother running out the back door of the house when they arrived. A K-9 officer chased them down and they were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Police called the killings the "worst criminal event" in the town's history.

Officers described the scene as "gruesome."

At the scene, they found knives, blades, and a hatchet.

Sgt Thomas Cooper of the Broken Arrow Police Department spoke on Thursday about the horrific scene.

"The crime scene has taken a pretty heavy toll on officers who have come out here," he said. "It hits close to home, especially when the victims are adults and juveniles. Our officers have a lot to take in."
