Vigil planned for victims of tragic Parkville shooting and 14-year-old survivor

PARKVILLE, Mo. -- A vigil is planned for Tuesday night to remember a family tragically killed in Platte County and the only survivor, a 14-year-old girl.

The vigil is scheduled for 7 p.m. It will take place in front of the surviving teen's home, 5830 NW Walnut Court. A neighbor who planned the vigil said there will be teachers and students there. The teachers will be there to console the teen's classmates and friends.

The 14-year-old survivor is the one who called 911 Sunday night to report that her father, 50-year-old Doug Pauling, shot and killed three people before taking his own life. The victims are 73-year-old Sharmalee Pauling; her husband, 67-year-old Carl Deruyscher; and Pauling’s ex-daughter-in-law, 49-year-old Margaret “Maggie” Girard. Doug was Sharmalee's son.
