According to York County authorities, police officers responded to a 911 call that found four dead at 985 Dunlap Roddey Road, just south of Rock Hill on Sunday evening. A shooting investigation is underway, but it is unclear if the victims died from gunshot wounds at this time.
Shortly after the bodies were reported, deputies reported that they would not be looking for a shooter, but there was an active crime scene investigation near Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene around 5:45 p.m, according to The State. Officials revealed the deceased to be Anna Hubbard Moore, 50, her husband, Randy Moore, 55, her son, Jason Lockamy, 31, and his girlfriend, Lora Kathryn Young, 31. Anna Hubbard Moore was York County’s Assistant Manager and supervised many other local programs.
“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. “We do know there was some gunfire involved inside the home,” he added.
Neighbors notified The Herald that the family had moved into their new home only two weeks prior and York County property records show that the house was purchased the previous month.
One of the deceased was found in the backyard, said Trent Faris, sheriff’s office spokesman. Officials have reason to believe that the incident was a murder-suicide, according to a report on the Examiner. But, few details have been provided, as local officials have been reluctant to provide information related to the case.
“We lost one of our own,” said county manager Bill Shanahan.
