Coroner: SC man kills woman, turns gun on self

PENDLETON, SC (AP) - Authorities say a South Carolina man shot and killed his girlfriend as she sat at her kitchen table with a friend before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide.

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Charlie Boseman told multiple media outlets the shootings happened late Saturday night at a home in Pendleton.

Boseman says the man and the woman dated and had a history of domestic violence.

Authorities say the other woman at the table was not hurt and called 911.

Autopsies have been scheduled for Monday.
