Six dead after hostage situation turns deadly

Six people are dead after a hostage situation turned deadly Tuesday night at a home on Callison Highway.

According to officials with the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the residence shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday. There was no movement inside the home and a hostage negotiator was brought in to get the hostages released. After there still no response from the home, the SWAT team entered the home and discovered the bodies in what is an apparent murder-suicide.

Greenwood County Sheriff Tony Davis said that a State Law Enforcement Division forensic team was en route from Columbia to assist with processing the crime scene. Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox is also on the scene.

More details will be posted as they are released.

I agree Vicki Ashley,People add stuff to rumors.No one knows what went on.I pray for the innocent victims.No one should go through anything like this and no one should have to bury a child.R.I.P. Angels.

Such a horrific tragedy for all families left behind to deal with. Rumors are running rapid like wildfire like every rumor a little is added by someone until it’s so distorted no one will be able to find their way through to the truth. Pleading with some to be respectful and take in consideration what each family will have to deal with will go on deaf ears/eyes. If you can, please just read the comments meant for comforting and to give strength in the days to come. I never met the families and never heard of them until this sad tragedy so take this as an understanding that you all have a nation that’s praying for you all and put all the negative comments in prospective, those are uttered by sad ppl that need our prayers too. For anyone that wants to know the ‘why’, I don’t believe anyone will ever know the ‘why’. I do have to say one thing, to the lady I believe Laurie, that gave the children safety, God Bless you! God placed you there because he was sending his children to you for & protection & comfort.

My heart and prayers go out to everyone involved.I myself lost a child due to someone else's stupidity and he got off scott free.I've been living with it for almost 5 years and it's been hard.Once I put it in GODS HANDS it got a little easier.No i'm not a religious fanatic but nothings possible without him.Why not show sympathy for everyone.
