Double murder at Anderson apartment complex, two suspects in custody following high-speed chase
The shooting reportedly took place early on May 3 morning at around 1:15 a.m. at the Fairview Gardens Apartments on Williamston Road
Two adults have been taken into custody after a fatal double shooting at an apartment complex in Anderson, South Carolina. The shooting reportedly took place on May 3 at around 1:15 a.m. at the Fairview Gardens Apartments on Williamston Road.
Anderson Police Captain Mike Aikens said that the officers were already in the area when the shootings occurred and were immediately dispatched to the scene shortly before 1:30 a.m.
Fox Carolina reported that Aikens then said that the authorities had noticed a suspicious vehicle leaving the apartment complex at high speed and tried to stop the vehicle. The suspects in the vehicle were able to flee and led the deputies on a chase across Anderson County.
The high-speed chase then continued over the Georgia state line where officers with Hart County assisted in stopping the speeding car. It is still unclear at this point where exactly the chase ended.
Captain Aikens, however, said that two suspects have been taken into custody. Their names, mugshots, and any possible charges they face have not been made available to the public as of yet. The shooting victims have only been identified as a male and a female.
Deputy Coroner Charlie Boseman was called to the crime scene and told reporters that it was still being processed as of 5:45 a.m. on Friday. He confirmed that the deaths involved a man and a woman at Fairview Garden Apartments in Anderson and also confirmed that both of the victims had been shot to death. As of now, both the deaths are being investigated as a homicide.
