Woman, girl found dead inside WPB home

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A woman and girl were found dead inside a home Thursday night, according to West Palm Beach police.

A man said he went to a house in the 130 block of Gregory Place at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday to pick up his daughter. However, he was unable to get inside and called police.

Police then entered the home and found a woman and a juvenile dead inside.

Authorities said they are treating the situation as a death investigation. "I'm sure the police and the first responders are able to take care of everything but certainly not something you expect to see on the south end or anywhere in the city that you live in, so its quite disturbing," said neighbor Josh Galle.

The deceased girl was a student at The King's Academy in West Palm Beach, according to a representative of the school.

The King's Academy released the following statement regarding the shooting:

We grieve today for the loss of our precious student and friend, and we ask for respect and prayer as our community deals with this loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, and our concern is for our students. Grief counseling will be available for students today and in coming days as they become aware.
