WENDELL, N.C. — Two people are dead in a triple shooting near Wendell, according to the Wake County Sheriff’s Department.

It happened around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday at a home in the 1100 block of Lake Glad Road.

Investigators said Angelia Smith Taylor, 57, was found dead inside the house.

Sylvester Taylor, 66, was found dead in the yard.

Latonya Holden, 32, was taken to WakeMed hospital. Three children were in the home at the time of the shooting, but they were not hurt.

Deputies said they identified Nathan Holden, 31, as the suspect and traced him to his home on Holden Acres Lane near Wendell.

After searching his house, deputies used a search dog to track Holden to a field near his home.

They said Holden started shooting at the dog handler and other deputies, but he was captured just before 3 a.m. Thursday without injury to him or officers.

Charges are pending.

    Too bad Nathan Holden didn’t die in his attempt to murder the police officers and K9. I guess the taxpayers of NC will be stuck with the tab, for the remiander of this POS’s life.
