Family members of NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson were killed in an apparent murder-suicide in Oklahoma on Tuesday, authorities said. 

Terry Janway is suspected of killing her husband, Jack, and her 11-year-old grandson, Dalton, before killing herself.

Terry and Jack were reportedly the parents of Johnson's wife, Chandra. 

Prior to officers arriving at the scene, a spokesperson for the Muskogee Police Department said a woman called dispatch to report a disturbance and that someone had a gun — before hanging up. 

Officers arrived at the house, where they reportedly found a person lying inside the front door. They then reported hearing a gunshot and discovering two more bodies. 

The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still under investigation, but police believe this was likely a case of murder-suicide. 

Johnson, a father of two, has not publicly commented on the incident.
