The Clark County coroner's office identified the youngest victim as 9-year-old Anhurak Jason Dej-Oudom.  
Dej-Oudom last attended Culley Elementary School, according to the Clark County School District.
"We called him AJ," said AJ's former teacher. "He was very smart, kind, and respectful."
Police said Dej-Oudom's father killed his wife and three children before turning a gun on himself.
"I've been crying all day," said the teacher. "He was always sweet and kind to others."
We are told that AJ excelled in school.
"He loved math, he was one of my top performing students," she said.
AJ had not attended the school for several months.
"He withdrew to do home school in January," said his teacher.
