Investigators Say Idaho Students Were a Targeted Attack

On Sunday, there were two horrible attacks on or near college campuses involving students.

The first was a mass shooting at the University of Virginia.

The second was the death of four University of Idaho students in an off-campus apartment.

Police now have more information on the latter.

Targeted Attack

The students were found in a Moscow, ID, apartment.

Police were called to the scene for someone that was unresponsive.

However, they found four students dead from apparent stab wounds when they arrived.

Moscow Police stated that "no weapons have been located, based on preliminary information, investigators believe that an edged weapon such as a knife was used."

Fox News reported, "the victims are Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee GonCalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho."

The four victims and two other students and posted a group selfie on Instagram only hours before the attack.

Police have no suspects at this time, but they did state that "based on information from the preliminary investigation, investigators believe this was an isolated, targeted attack and there is no imminent threat to the community at large."

Moscow police added, "Investigators are continuing to work diligently on establishing a timeline of relevant events to re-create the victims' activities on the evening of November 12 and early morning of November 13, following all leads and identifying persons of interest."

University of Idaho President Scott Green stated, "Words cannot adequately describe the light these students brought to this world or ease the depth of suffering we feel at their passing under these tragic circumstances.

"No one feels that loss more than their families and friends.

"The university is working directly with those affected and is committed to supporting all students, families and employees as this event undeniably touches all of us."

The Moscow Police are asking anyone with information regarding the attack to contact them at 208-883-7054.
