Police in Reading, Pennsylvania, are searching for a suspect in a quadruple murder case that happened Sunday night.

Four men were shot to death, according to police, on the first floor of a three-story brick building.

“We cannot remember any time in recent history when this many people were shot at one time,” said Reading Deputy Police Chief James Marasco in a press conference Monday.

The Reading Police Department told International Business Times that there have been no arrests or updates in the case Tuesday.

Marasco said that the killing appeared to be “targeted” and “not a random act.” Police believe that whoever shot the victims was not a threat to other residents in Reading. Police believe this to be an isolated incident.

Three of the victims were identified as Jarlyn Lantigua-Tejada, 20, Juan Rodriguez, 23, and Joshua Santos, 20, all Hispanic men. The fourth victim had not been identified, but was also a male police believe to be in his early 20s. Police said that all victims had been shot multiple times. At least one of the men was living at the residence where the murder happened, police said.

Three of the victims were found dead when police arrived on the scene, while the fourth died at an area hospital.

“It’s sad it really is,” said Marasco. “We’ve spoken to a lot of people already, but we will talk to anybody who has anything, who thinks they have anything to contribute to this, even if it's a minor detail, we would like them to come forward and share that information with us.”

The Berks County District Attorney’s office who is assisting in the case did not immediately respond IBT’s request for comment.
