Eerie video captures students’ final moments
Eerie video footage captured the experiences of two University of Idaho students before they were shot dead along with two friends in their apartment building outside.

The time of the shooting and after
Authorities in Moscow, Idaho, have released very few details about what happened to four University of Idaho students who were shot over the weekend.
Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Kaylee Goncalves were found dead in a home near the University of Idaho campus on Sunday, just hours after posting a smiling photo on Instagram.
Police have warned the small town of 25,000 people to be careful because there may be more than one suspect at large.
Here’s a timeline of what we know so far:

Roomates is not a suspect in the investigation
Friends of the victims were not treated as victims in the four murders, according to authorities.
Moscow police announced at a press conference on Wednesday that two residents were in the house at the time of the shooting and were left unharmed.
Police Chief Fry said the roommates were not required to testify to the crime. It is not clear if the two people in the bedroom were awakened by the attack or why the police were not called until the afternoon, about eight hours after the murder.
Idaho State Police said the occupants of the room are not believed to be suspects and are cooperating with the investigation.

The police face opposition from the community due to lack of transparency
As the mystery deepened, Moscow residents and students began posting on social media about their displeasure with explanations from city officials.
Following Mayor Bettge’s “crime of passion” speech, he said The United States said he only expressed this as a thought, said: “It could be one of many things. The police do not know yet. I have not said.”
He added: “They have confirmed that there is no other threat to the community. I would say that it is the only crime focused on this site. “
That same day, Annie Reneau, who said she is the mother of a University of Idaho senior, wrote a lengthy article on Twitter that included the community’s fears.
“I’m not sure if people who don’t directly go to the University of Idaho in some way understand how little information students, parents and community members get about the killing of 4 students in an outside school two days ago,” Ms. Reneau said.
“Police believe it was an isolated, targeted attack. Okay, but some people who are crazy/angry/smoking/whatever enough to stab four people to death, even aim, out of nowhere. I’m not usually paranoid, but that doesn’t sit well, does it?

The character of the death was not released immediately
On Monday, the Moscow Police Department called the four students, but the authorities were unclear about their fate.
Mr. Bettge said The New York Times that he believed the murder was a “crime of passion”, and later admitted to another source: “We don’t know what it is.”
Moscow Police Chief Fry said that a murder-suicide has been ruled out and that the suspect is wanted for the murder.
Police added that there is no threat to the public before saying on Wednesday that the community should be vigilant because the suspect is still at large.
Autopsies have been performed but the results have not been made public. It is believed that the victims were stabbed with “long weapons such as knives.”
