A 14-year-old Mill Creek Middle School student and her parents are dead in what police think is a murder-suicide.

Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid said deputies responded to 4785 Grassy Creek Road in Denver to find the bodies of Rick Wheeler, Angela Wheeler and their daughter Samantha inside the house.

Reid said it appears Rick shot Angela and Samantha, then shot himself. Deputies responded to the house after receiving a 9-1-1 hang-up call.

A vigil is planned for 7-8 p.m. Monday at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church in Sherrills Ford.
