2 found dead at gas station likely murder-suicide

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Richland County deputies say two people found dead in a car outside a Columbia gas station appear to be part of a murder-suicide.

Investigators say witnesses called police Friday night after seeing a woman shoot a man in the car, then turn the gun on herself.

The coroner's office has not released the names of the man and woman because their families have not been notified.

Authorities say a witness told investigators the couple were involved in a romantic relationship.
