Four adults, two children dead in Greenwood Co., SC home

Four adults and two children have been found dead inside a home in an apparent murder-suicide in Greenwood County, according to law enforcement officials.

Greenwood County Sheriff's Office spokesperson John Long says deputies received a call about the home on Callison Highway just before 6 p.m.

They first believed the call to be a hostage situation, but they ruled that out after deputies received no response from anyone inside the home.

The SWAT team eventually entered the home and discovered the bodies.

Investigators believe one of the people found was the shooter in this case. As for the children, Sheriff's officials say they were both around 10 years old and they were related to someone inside the home.

SLED is also being brought in to investigate the deaths.

The Sheriff's Office and SLED will be at the scene throughout the night in an effort to piece together what exactly happened.
