A Henderson father and his 7-year-old daughter are dead after police say the father shot his daughter and then turned the gun on himself.

Police found the bodies of Matthew Bias, 41, and his daughter Annaliese Grace Bias, inside 4 Barnett Drive just after 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Police tell 14 News that Matthew Bias' brother called 911 after receiving an alarming text message.

Officers arrived and that's when they found the Bias family dead.

Although the official cause of death for Matthew and Annaliese is pending autopsy, police say they believe that Matthew shot and killed Annaliese before turning the gun on himself.
