BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Beaufort County Coroner’s Office has identified three people who were killed in a shooting at a home on St. Helena Island Wednesday morning.

Authorities identified the three as 55-year-old Robin Saunders of St. Helena, 22-year-old Kalila Saunders of St. Helena and 24-year-old Jaquan Sanders of Seabrook.

Deputies said that although the case remains under investigation, it is believed that all parties involved in the shooting have been identified and located.

The investigation began when deputies responded at 11:30 a.m. to a home on Eddings Road for a report of three people who were wounded by gunfire.

“When they arrived, deputies secured the scene for Beaufort County Emergency Services to tend to the wounded people: two were pronounced dead at the scene, one was transported and later died at the Beaufort Memorial Hospital,” the sheriff’s office said.

Forensic autopsies are scheduled to be conducted at the Medical University of South Carolina on Wednesday, Feb. 2.
