Danish police on Wednesday arrested a 19-year-old man suspected of killing three family members in northern Jutland.
North Jutland Police have made an arrest in an apparent triple murder in the village of Gandrup, northeast of Aalborg. 
 
A 64-year-old man, his 54-year-old wife and their 22-year-old son were killed in what police have described as a family tragedy. 
 
Police received an emergency call at 2.50am and arrived to find the three victims dead. Less than 90 minutes later, a 19-year-old turned himself in for the murders and was arrested. 
 
A police spokesman told TV2 that the arrestee was “a family member” to the deceased but did not provide additional details. 
 
A neighbour to the family told TV2 Nord that he was shocked by the tragedy. 
 
“[They were] a stable and good family that always had things under control and lived a calm and normal life,” the neighbour, identified only as Peter, said. 
 
The arrested man was scheduled to make a preliminary court appearance on Wednesday afternoon.
