In a graphic 911 call released in an apparent double murder-suicide on Wadmalaw Island early Sunday morning, the sound of crying is followed by what sounds like gunshots.
It is unclear who made the 911 call because when the 911 dispatcher asks the caller information, there is no answer. Less than a minute later, what sounds like another shot is fired. The line stays open with the operator, but nobody answers her questions.
The Charleston County Coroner's Office says Termaine Fraiser, 39, died after shooting himself. His girlfriend, Kennitha LaBoard, 33, and her mother, Althea Goss, 54, were both shot to death in an apparent murder-suicide incident that started after a fight in a home on the 1400 block of Richard McCloud Lane.
Deputies responding to a report of shots being fired arrived on the scene just after 6 a.m. and heard a gunshot. They immediately backed off and activated their SWAT team. Shortly after that, deputies entered the house, according to Charleston County Sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson.
The sheriff's office says it is trying to verify whether the same gun was used in all three deaths, but says deputies are not looking for any additional suspects.
