A teenager believed to be a Dr. Phillips High School student was among three people found dead in what Orlando police are calling a murder-suicide.

According to police, a woman called 911 because she couldn’t get ahold of her family in Orlando. Officers went to the Residences at Villa Medici Condos on Conroy Road Friday morning, where they forced their way into the home.

Police discovered the bodies of a 53-year-old man, his 48-year-old wife and a 16-year-old girl, officials said. Police believe the man shot his wife and daughter before killing himself. The victims have not been identified.
