The man is believed to have known the victims, police said.

A Northern California man has been arrested on suspicion of killing four people after he drove to a police station with a body in his car, authorities said.

Shankar Hangud, 53, walked into the lobby of Mount Shasta Police and allegedly confessed to killing four people at his home in Roseville, about 260 miles away, cops said.

One of the victims was in his vehicle in the parking lot, police said.

Roseville officers went to his apartment and found three more bodies, authorities said. 

Police said the victims were part of Hangud's family. Two were adults and two were juveniles. Their names, ages and causes of death have not yet been released. The body in Hangud's car belonged to an adult male, authorities said. 

"I have never had someone come in with a body and turn themselves in here," Sgt. Robert Gibson told reporters Tuesday.

The man has not yet been charged.

"He just came in and told our dispatcher that 'I want to confess to a murder,' and just gave it up," Gibson said. The man was "matter of fact," Gibson said.
