A California man has been arrested for killing four people after he drove to a police station with one of the bodies in his car to confess to the murder, authorities said.

Shankar Hangud, 53, walked into the lobby of the Mount Shasta Police Department just after noon on Monday, Oct. 14, to report he had murdered four people at his Roseville, California apartment, more than 200 miles away, investigators said.

Hangud then said that one of the victims was inside his car in the parking lot, police said, according to Fox News.

Officers confirmed his story after they found the body inside his vehicle and they immediately took him into custody, according to a news release.

The Roseville Police Department was notified and officers were dispatched to his apartment, where they found three more bodies.

Police said the four victims were part of Hangud’s family. Two were adults and two were juveniles. Their identities have not been released yet.

Investigators said the killings unfolded over several days. They haven’t released a motive.

Police did not release information about how Hangud had killed his victims but indicated that there were no firearms present inside his home or on his person when he turned himself into Mount Shasta authorities.

Roseville police have taken over the investigation. Hangud was being held at the South Placer County Jail without bail, facing four counts of first-degree murder.
