GREENWOOD COUNTY, S.C. (AP) – Six people have been found dead in a South Carolina home following an apparent domestic dispute.

Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office spokesman John Long told The Associated Press late Tuesday that the dead include four adults and two children. He said the bodies were discovered by a SWAT team that entered the house "after several unsuccessful attempts to make contact" with someone inside.

Long says officers first went to the home in Greenwood County after receiving a call from a man who said he was thinking about hurting himself. He says while police were on their way, one of the man’s neighbors called 911 saying four children from that address had arrived at her house and told her a shot had been fired.

Long says a preliminary investigation indicates the shootings were "a domestic-related incident."
