Bernalillo County has released the mug shot of Nehemiah Griego, a 15-year-old suspected of killing his father, mother and three young siblings Saturday in their South Valley home.

Deputies say Griego told them he killed the five family members.

Officials have indentified the victims as Greg Griego, 51; his wife Sara Griego, 40; and three of their children, Zephania Griego, 9; Jael Griego, 5; and Angelina Griego, 2.

Shortly after 1 p.m. police identified the shooter as 15-year-old as Nehemiah Griego - Greg Griego's son.

Police believe the teenager used an AR-15 semi automatic rifle in the shooting. Multiple weapons were retrieved from the house.

KOB 4 is told that Nehemiah Griego called someone after the incident, and that person called 911.

Greg Griego is the brother of former state Sen. Eric Griego.
