PELZER, S.C. -

Out of breath, the 911 caller tells dispatch she was inside the Law Street house when three people were shot and killed, March 5th. In the call she tells dispatch someone “shot my whole family.”

She explains that she ran to a neighbor’s house to call 911, and minutes into the call she reveals that she's hurt too.

“Yes, I’m shot,” she tells the dispatcher.

The caller says the three victims were like her family: Wanda Anderson, Victor Vandegrift and Hank Eaten.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office identified the shooter as Jared Michael Williams. He faces more than a dozen charges including three counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.

The caller says she knew Williams from the neighborhood. In the call, she says he was at the home for some time before an argument started and Williams started shooting.

“Did you actually see him shoot those other people or did you just hear it?” the dispatcher asked.

"I did,” and “yep,” were the caller’s reply.

In the call, you can also hear the woman help law enforcement track down Williams. She also describes Williams and his girlfriend Hope Phillips who was later charged with murder, four counts of accessory and grand theft.

“He just left in my sister's truck,” she says. “It's a green Chevrolet.”

Deputies say Williams and Phillips led them on a high speed chase that ended with a crash and arrests.

Both Jared Williams and Hope Phillips are in jail on murder charges. Anderson County deputies say Williams faces additional weapons charges and charges stemming from that high speed chase.

A judge denied their bond. They are expected to appear before a circuit court judge at a later day.
