MOSCOW, Idaho — (UPDATE: 10:29 p.m.) The University of Idaho announced that Sunday’s four homicide victims were students living off-campus.

Out of respect, university officials canceled all statewide classes, online and in-person for Monday, November 14, but the campus will remain open. Classes will resume Tuesday, November 15.

The identities of the students have not been released. For those seeking support options, they can contact the Counseling and Testing Center, located on the third floor of Mary Forney Hall or call (208) 885-6716.

(ORIGINAL STORY): The Moscow Police Department (MPD) is actively investigating a homicide about a mile from the University of Idaho campus.

MPD reported that officers received a call around 11:58 a.m. about an unconscious person at a home on King Road. When police arrived on scene, they found four people dead inside.

According to the University of Idaho Facebook page, a shelter-in-place order from U of I has since been lifted, but the campus encourages students to stay vigilant.

The University of Idaho Public Safety and Security does state this is an off-campus incident. They added that Moscow Police said there’s no active threat to the student community.

MPD has since begun an active investigation. More information will be released as soon as the next of kin of the victims are notified.

MPD is asking any individuals who may have information to call the Moscow Police Department at 208-882-COPS. Capt. Tyson Berrett is the case agent for this incident. He can be reached at tberrett@ci.moscow.id.us.
