    The four victims were found fatally shot around 4:30 a.m. Sunday outside a home in the 17400 block of Devonshire Street in Northridge. The residence has been described as an illegal boarding home with as many as 17 tenants.

    On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Police Department announced a break in the case; four suspects allegedly linked to the shooting were arrested at the Silverton Hotel in Las Vegas.

    LAPD Chief Charlie Beck identified them as Ka Pasasouk, 31, of LA; Howard Alcantara, 30, of Glendale; Donna Rabulan, 30, of LA; and Christina Neal, 31, of LA.

    The suspects' first court appearance was scheduled for Thursday in Las Vegas, according to the Clark County Courts.

    Pasasouk is expected to be charged with murder, while the others will face accessory after the fact charges, Beck said during Tuesday's news conference. A charge of robbery is also expected against Alcantara, the chief said.
