TWO DEAD BODIES FOUND AT COPPER BEECH COMPLEX

By FITSNEWS || Richland County (S.C.) deputies are investigating an alleged murder-suicide at a student housing complex located near Williams Brice Stadium in downtown Columbia, S.C.

According to sources familiar with the incident, a college student was killed by a former romantic interest at the Copper Beech apartment complex off of Bluff Road.  The killer then reportedly turned the gun on themselves.

It’s not immediately clear who killed who … but according to WLTX TV 19 (CBS – Columbia, S.C), two victims in their mid-twenties (one male and one female) were found dead of upper body gunshot wounds at the complex on Tuesday evening.

No further details were immediately available.  Well, aside from the fact that the bodies had reportedly been in the complex for “some time” before being discovered by one of the victim’s roommates – who hadn’t been at the complex since last Friday.

UPDATE: Victims identified.  Murder-suicide reporting confirmed.
