Investigators said upon arrival they found one of the sons and the father, 50-year-old Zachary Ervin, who was severely injured and bleeding heavily. The dad had walked out of the garage of the house when police arrived. Police immediately took the son into custody.

FOX 5 News got a copy of the booking video that shows brothers Michael Christopher and Anthony Cameron Ervin hours after the attack occurred. The brothers show little emotion in the booking video. The older brother, Michael Christopher, appears to yawn at one point.

Police said that when they entered the home there was a strong odor of natural gas. There was evidence found inside the home suggesting the brothers tried to start a fire, according to police.

The brothers were taken into custody when police arrived at the scene. They are expected to appear before a Gwinnett County judge on Friday at 1:30 p.m. They are being held at the Gwinnett County Detention Center for Aggravated Assault and Arson.

"It is unclear at this point what the exact reasons were for the attack," said police in a news release on Tuesday. "It is apparent that the brothers launched a plot to kill both of their parents."

According to police, the mother has been released from the hospital, but the father is still receiving treatment for his injuries.
