Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

Deputies want to know what led up to a shooting that left two people dead.

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office says they got a report of a disturbance and found a man and woman both shot at a house on Gilbert Court around 11:30 Wednesday night.

Greenville County Deputy Coroner Barry Wright says they believe 19-year-old Erith Carrillo shot 18-year-old Mary Guthrie and then turned the gun on himself both died of gunshot wounds to the head. 

The couple shared the residence at 6 Gilbert Court.  Wright says they were not married but were parents to a 3 month old infant found in the home.  

Deputies are asking you to call Crimestoppers at 864-23-CRIME if you have any information about what happened.

Domestic Violence Support

According to the National Resource Center for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner each year.

Lynn Hawkins at SAFE Homes Rape Crisis Coalition says the fear is that the trend will continue throughout their lives.

"It's just not an unusual situation for us to see kids, I mean you know they're so young, and they're already involved in such horrific patterns of violence," Hawkins explained. "It makes you want to mother them or big sister them and that's what we do a lot of in terms of encouragement and support, but you know you also want to teach them, and they haven't learned those lessons growing up in their family homes."

Hawkins says SAFE Homes Rape Crisis Coalition partners with local schools and colleges to try and help young people.      

"Because if you want to stop domestic violence and sexual assault, you have to we have to do it through the education of our young."
