4 people found dead in S.C. home

Four people were found dead at a home Sunday night after a shooting in Rock Hill, S.C., according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators worked late into the night at the home. The identities of the victims were not released, pending notification of family members, York County Sheriff Bruce Bryant said.

Law enforcement officials said they were called to the home around 5:45 p.m. Sunday. Later, they spoke with someone who had been inside the home earlier, officials said.

By 8 p.m., officials with the Sheriff’s Office said they were not looking for a suspect or shooter in the case. Bryant said it appeared all the victims were killed Sunday, but further details about the homicide were not available late Sunday.

“Until we get our crime scene (investigators) inside and we do a thorough investigation, we can’t say all four of these people were shot,” Bryant said while at the home Sunday.

He added, “We do know there was some gunfire involved inside the home.”

At least one victim was found dead outside the home, in the backyard, said Trent Faris, sheriff’s office spokesman.

The crime scene was active for several hours on the residential street in southern Rock Hill, just outside the city limits.

Neighbors said Sunday night that a family had just moved into the home about two weeks ago. York County tax and property records show the home was sold last month.
