Lahore: A frustrated teenager in Pakistan's Punjab province shot dead eight members of his family, including his mother and father, a media report said on Sunday.

18-year-old Afzal killed his six siblings -- aged between three and 16 years -- and parents after drugging them in Punjab's Gujranwala district. The family members were shot at a point-blank range, the police was quoted as saying by Pakistan's Geo news channel.

An addict, Afzal confessed to killing his parents, four brothers, and two sisters as he was frustrated with constant domestic bickering. Other media reports said that the teenager was upset with the poverty that had engulfed the family.

The police arrested him and recovered a 30-bore pistol, which was suspected to have been used in the crime.
