Bernalillo County sheriff spokesman Aaron Williamson says police are "trying to identify the victims," but each was shot more than one time.

Several guns were found at the residence/crime scene, including a semi-automatic military-style rifle. It's unknown who owned the weapons.

Said Peter Gomez, a neighbor who spoke to The Huffington Post:

"It's a horrible thing. You see all this stuff that happens all over the country, the shootings in the schools and theaters, and then it happens right here. It's sad."
