(CNN) — Police are investigating a homicide after four University of Idaho students were found dead Sunday at a home near campus.

Police and the university’s president said that officers responding before noon to a call of an unconscious person discovered the fatalitie.

“It is with deep sadness that I share with you that the university was notified today of the death of four University of Idaho students living off-campus believed to be victims of homicide,” university president Scott Green said in a statement to the campus community.

Police have not released the causes of death or identities of the victims. Police have indicated “there is no ongoing threat,” the university tweeted Sunday without elaborating.

The stunning discovery comes as another US college campus — the University of Virginia in Charlottesville — is reeling as authorities hunt early Monday for a gunman, identified as a UVA student, accused of killing three people and wounding two Sunday on school grounds. A lockdown there remains in place.

University of Idaho classes canceled

At the University of Idaho — where students Sunday afternoon initially were advised to shelter in place amid the homicide probe — in-person and online classes Monday are canceled and set to resume Tuesday.

The deceased students’ families have been notified, and the university is working to assist with the police investigation, Green said. Moscow police said anyone with information about the case should call them.

“We are grateful for the support of the community and the ongoing efforts of the Police Department. The university is committed to supporting students and families during this difficult time,” Green said.

CNN has reached out to the university and to the police department for more details.
