May 29, 2019

LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot and killed his brother and an employee at the family business in South Carolina before killing himself.

Investigators said deputies found the bodies of Christopher McCutchan and Tammy Ricard at a business Tuesday evening.

Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said in a statement that deputies found another body a short time later checking on a call about shots fired at a dock.

Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher said Heath McCutchan’s body was found in Lake Murray. She says Heath and Christopher McCutchan are brothers and Ricard was an employee at their business.

Koon says the shooting appeared to be part of a family dispute. He says the investigation continues, but no one else appears to have been involved.
