ESSEX, Md. – Investigators are looking into what caused a 16-year-old Kentucky teen to allegedly kill his family.

In Kentucky, officers discovered the bodies of Susan Hendrix, Kevin Hendrix and their daughter, Grace, on Saturday afternoon.

Baltimore County police say the suspect in the murders was the couple’s son, 16-year-old Jason Hendrix.

After the triple murder, police say Jason led officer on a chase in Maryland.

At that point, authorities did not know he was the suspect in the triple murder.

After leading officers on a chase, Hendrix eventually crashed into another vehicle.

As officers approached the car, authorities say Hendrix immediately started shooting at them.

One officer was hit in the chest.

Fortunately, the officer’s bulletproof vest prevented the round from causing any serious damage.

Hendrix was shot and killed by other officers on the scene.

Now, investigators are trying to find out what could have caused Hendrix to kill his family.

Chief David Campbell, with the Corbin Police Department, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that Hendrix “was mad at his parents over the usage of his computer. They had taken his computer rights away.”
