"My son was there, he was very shook up. He is only 11. These guys had guns, they put a gun to his head," a relative told BlackCountryLive. 

"They put a knife to my mom's throat, which is his grandmother, then they put a gun to my dad's head. 


"My son was pleading with them 'please don't shoot my grandad, don't stab my grandma'. He was crying and screaming but they weren't bothered."
