A mother in Snellville, Georgia, had to make a frantic call to police to let them know that her and her husband were being attacked. It was shocking enough already, but it was even more surprising when the woman revealed that it was her sons who were trying to kill them.
As reported by WSBTV, Yvonne Ervin called 911 around 7:49 a.m. on Sunday morning to advise police of the situation. She let the dispatcher know that her 17-year-old son, Cameron Ervin, and her 22-year-old son, Christopher Ervin, were trying to kill her and her husband, Zachary Ervin.
The dispatcher was told by Yvonne that her husband had managed to distract both of her sons for a small while. This allowed her to get to the phone and call 911, per a news release.
“She told the 911 operator that it was their two sons, one 17 and the other 22 years old, trying to kill them both. She stated that her husband was distracting them so she was able to call for help. The call eventually went silent.”
Upon arriving on the scene, Gwinett County police officers found the husband, Zachary, and one of the sons (not known which one) outside of the home. Zachary Ervin was bleeding heavily and had severe injuries.
ABC News reports that the mother, Yvonne, was found inside of the home with the other son and also had severe injuries. Both parents were hospitalized.
Both brothers were arrested.
The two brothers were charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and arson in the first degree to endanger a human life. As per the Gwinnett County police, the age of 17 is considered an adult for prosecution of criminal offenses in Georgia.
As of now, there is no known motive for the attacks that the sons delivered to their parents. The sons were cooperative with police after being taken into custody at the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
Neighbor Clint Miller lived next to the Ervin family, and he honestly thought they were good people and always happy together.
“You would never even expect that. They’re just an every day normal family in the neighborhood.”
Even though the two sons, Cameron and Christopher Ervin, have been speaking to police, they still haven’t given the slightest inclination as to why they tried to kill their parents. A preliminary hearing is set for September 11 for the boys from Snellville, Georgia, and the parents are expected to survive and make a recovery.
