    ALBUQUERQUE, NM (CBS/KRQE) - The investigation into a mass murder at a south valley home continues tonight and there are still a lot of unanswered questions.

    Many of them center on the alleged shooter, a teen now accused of gunning down five family members. Early accounts of 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego paint the picture of a shy teen with a unique look.

    It's a crime scene deputies described by the sheriff as horrific; five people dead, two adults, three children, all killed by multiple gunshot wounds. Deputies say all killed by 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego, who is believed to have lived in the home.

    Those who lived near the Griego family saw a good amount of Nehemiah in the neighborhood in the middle of the day. They say he was always wearing his camouflage gear and was courteous, but quiet.

    APS tells News 13 Nehemiah is not registered with the district. Neighbors say they believe he was homeschooled.

    An online bio written up for the Calvary Church website for Nehemiah's father, Greg, indicates he may have been the 7th of ten kids.

    News 13 was also able to find this profile on a dating website where Nehemiah described himself this way quote: "I'm a fun loving guy who like to make ppl happy. I might be shy but I'll open up once you get to know me."

    Deputies haven't told us what they believe Nehemiah Griego's motive was.

    We also don't know where any of the multiple weapons Nehemiah is accused of using on his family came from.
