UPDATE: Victims identified in fatal shooting

March 17, 2011

Victims' names from a Tuesday morning shooting were released Thursday.
In addition to Wade "Squeaky" Sigmon, 49, of Conover, Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid identified the other deceased victims as Susan Kay Blevins, 51, of Conover, and Connie Canipe Miller, 42, of Conover.
The only survivor in the incident is Joseph Burke, 38. Reid said Burke's address is being held for safety reasons.
Deputies arrested Everette Hewitt, 32, of Claremont, on Wednesday in connection with the killings. Hewitt denies the three murder charges after he was identified as the man who entered a mobile home in Conover at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday demanding money. Hewitt allegedly then started shooting the victims and left with an ATM card.
Two people were pronounced dead at the scene. A third victim died at the hospital.
