Moscow Police have identified the four University of Idaho students who were found dead Sunday at a house near the campus.
Police in Idaho said they responded to a call of an unconscious person at the home just before noon on Sunday.
When they arrived at the scene, they found all four people dead in a ‘house that was converted into an apartment,’ Police Capt. Tyson Berrett told the Idaho Statesman.
He later announced that all four students were students at the university, which the school also disclosed in a news release.
It remains unclear how the victims died, but local police are considering it a homicide.
Police have not taken any suspects into custody as of Monday, but say they do not believe there is a threat to the rest of the school community.
In a statement, Moscow police said no suspects had been arrested, but they did not believe there was an “ongoing community risk” based on their preliminary investigation.
“Our heartfelt sympathies go out to each and every person affected by this incident,” the statement read.
The campus was placed into lockdown on Sunday afternoon as the University of Idaho issued an alert to students to stay away from the area and shelter in place.

Kernodle, of Avondale, Arizona, also seemed to be dating Chapin, of Conway, Washington, according to her Instagram.
Goncalves, of Rathdrum, Idaho, also posted pictures of her sorority sisters with Chapin just hours before their untimely death.
