GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A 911 call led to two people being found dead Friday morning in a Greenville County home.
The Greenville County Sheriff’s Offices said an investigation was initiated after a child called 911 after hearing loud popping noises at a home on Windy Oak Way in Greer.
Upon arrival, officials located two adults inside the home dead.
Deputies said both bodies displayed obvious signs of trauma.
“Both subjects had at least one gunshot wound,” Senior Deputy Coroner Shelton England said.
The coroner’s office identified the two as 33-year-old Angelica Celeste Aquino and 33-year-old Jonathan M. Sherrill.
Investigators were on scene for several hours along with Greenville County Forensics and the Greenville County Coroners’ office.
In a fairly quiet neighborhood residents say they were surprised with the number of officers that filled the streets.
“When I went to go to work there were police everywhere,” a neighbor said. “You could tell something very serious had happened.”
One neighbor who says she’s lived in the area for more than 16 years says she’s become more cautious than she once was.
“I don’t feel this is something that happens normally around here but yes I am going to be very cautious from here on and I probably will do my walking inside, do my inside workouts,” a neighbor told 7NEWS.
The Greenville County Coroner’s Office said Aquino died from a gunshot wound to the head. Her death is being ruled a homicide. The cause of death for Sherrill is still pending.
The investigation is in its early stages according to authorities. 7NEWS will update this story as more information becomes available.
