COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man killed four people in South Carolina, then took his own life after officers chased him in a car belonging to one of the victims.
Capt. Charles Barranco, an Aiken County Sheriff's spokesman, says 46-year-old Kenneth Myers led deputies Sunday morning to the spot in Wagener where three bodies were found about nine hours earlier and shot himself.
The coroner identified the dead as Myers' wife, 25-year-old Angela Myers; her twin sister, Tabitha Brown; her mother, 50-year-old Vicki Brown; and Myers' ex-wife, 47-year-old Esther Baldwin. All four died from single gunshots.
Investigators say they are still trying to figure out why Myers went on a killing spree. Barranco says deputies weren't familiar with him before Saturday night.
