A statement from the FBI said the suspect in the case was identified by police as a 26-year-old man from the San Francisco Bay Area.
He was shot multiple times in the abdomen and back during the attack.
The FBI said that the suspect has been identified as Robert J. Garcia, a former student at the University of California, Berkeley, who was a student at Cal State Long Beach, where he worked on a computer science project.
The FBI said Garcia had previously been charged in California with attempted murder, aggravated assault and burglary.
Garcia was taken into custody after a search of his home, but was later found to be in the country illegally, the FBI statement said.
Gardner Police Chief Kevin Smith said in a statement Monday that the investigation into the killing is ongoing.
He said the department was working with the FBI and other local law enforcement agencies to make the public aware of the investigation and to notify family members and friends.
“The investigation is ongoing and we appreciate the assistance of the FBI in this matter,” Smith said.
