    Students at St. John LaLande Catholic School in Blue Springs will gather Monday to share memories of Gabrielle Morejon, a seventh-grader shot to death Wednesday at her Lake Lotawana home.

    Investigators believe the 12-year-old was a victim of a murder-suicide. Her father, George Morejon, was found dead in a vehicle behind the house.

    Gabrielle had attended St. John LaLande since she was 3.

    “She was a beautiful, very bright girl,” the school’s principal, Natalie Helm, said Friday.

    The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call about the shooting at 6:10 p.m. Wednesday. The Morejon home was in the 25000 block of Milton Thompson Road.

    A sheriff’s spokesman said Friday that more information would be released when autopsies were completed.

    News of the shooting shocked students at Gabrielle’s school.

    “This is a small school, only 21 in her seventh-grade class, and many of those kids have been together since kindergarten,” Helm said. “They were just grief-stricken. So sad for all of us.”

    A rosary will be part of Monday’s program.
