A South Carolina teenager shot and killed his father and his 83-year-old great aunt, and critically wounded his 80-year-old grandmother before he called 911 to report the attack, a police spokesman said Tuesday.
The shootings happened Monday night in a house on a wooded stretch of road near railroad tracks in the northwestern part of the state. All three shooting victims were shot in the head, Spartanburg Public Safety Capt. Art Littlejohn said.
The teen has not been charged and his name has not been released. The audio of the 911 call also has not been made public.
The closest neighbor is an auto shop that houses a combination of car-related businesses where the teen would play most days after school with the 9-year-old nephew of one of the business owners.
"I'm sort of devastated with the whole thing because I don't understand it," said Barry Taylor, 61, who lives behind his son's towing business where the teen played. "He was such a nice little boy."
