GREENWOOD, S.C. (WYFF) - The man wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of two adults and a young girl in South Carolina has been arrested in Florida, according to authorities.
U.S. Marshals arrested Jeffery David Powell, 36, at a Red Roof Inn in Jacksonville, Florida.
The coroner also released the names of the victims overnight.
He said 56-year-old Randy Grant Perkins, 30-year-old Megan Lee Gale Dinkins, and 11-year-old Shey Nicole Dinkins, all of Greenwood, were found dead Monday afternoon at a home on Heddy Road in Greenwood County.
Deputies at the scene said a fourth victim, a boy, was taken to the hospital, but his condition was not released.
A motive was not immediately known, deputies said.
“There’s a relationship there, but we’re still trying to get some of those details on how they know each other,” said Greenwood County Sheriff Dennis Kelly.
