Meanwhile, one of the victims, officials have said could be a middle school student in Roseville. 

Dry Creek Elementary School District Superintendent Brad Tooker was quoted by The Sacramento Bee as saying, “It is with a heavy heart I inform you, pending confirmation from authorities, we believe one of the victims in the Carmel at Woodcreek West apartment complex homicide may have been one of our treasured Silverado Middle School students.”

All four of the victims are related to Hangud, the officials have said, but have not specified how they were related to him. The names of the victims have not been revealed either. 

The Sacramento Bee reported that many students in the school district live in the apartment complex where the crime was committed and even know the student. 

The reports said that Hangud has no criminal history.

The motive of the murder is not known, but The Modesto Bee reported that Hangud’s tax record showed that he faced a federal tax lien of $178,603 from the Internal Revenue Service this year.
