Police on Saturday were called to 52 Greenmont Drive in Enola, where a man later identified as John Miller was arguing with his adult daughter, East Pennsboro police said.

Responding officers deemed the situation "civil in nature," and left the scene.

However, a short time later, police got a 911 call from Miller, saying he had shot and killed his wife and his daughter, authorities said.

Officers arrived on scene and Miller was taken into custody without incident.
