HOLLY HILL, SC (WCSC) -

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office will be giving an update in a quadruple homicide that happened in Holly Hill in 2015. 

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell announced Wednesday afternoon that a press conference will be held on Thursday at noon at the Orangeburg County Law Enforcement Complex. 

A source close to the investigation told WIS-TV that two men, 27-year-old Derrick Coleman and 35-year-old Antly Scott, have been arrested in connection to the murders. OCSO officials have not commented on that information and are expected to release more information. 

The July 15, 2015 shooting took the lives of Jerome Butler, 50, Krystal Hutto, 28, Shamekia Sanders, 17, and Tamara-Alexia Perry, 14. 

An 8-year-old boy was also hurt during the shooting after suffering from a gunshot wound. 

Authorities said dispatchers received a call about an incident at a home in the 7,000 block of Old State Road at 6:48 a.m. on July 15, 2015. 

Deputies found Butler in the front yard of the home.

Hutto's body was found in one bedroom and the two teens were found in another bedroom. 

A fifth victim, an 8-year-old boy who was found alive, but injured, was airlifted to MUSC.

Investigators said all the deceased victims died from gunshot wounds.
