The upscale Irmo home where two people were shot dead in April is for sale.

The Ascot Estates home of Brett Parker is on the market for $749,000, according to several online real estate listings. Parker and his wife, Tammy Parker, bought the two-story, five-bedroom house in 2009 for $760,000.

In April, Tammy Parker, and Bryan Capnerhurst, a family friend, were shot to death on the second floor. Brett Parker was home and was the only survivor. Parker has told police that he was in the bathroom when Capnerhurst shot his wife. Parker said he ran upstairs to confront Capnerhurst and was able to reach a gun and shoot and kill his friend.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department has been mum about the investigation in the three months since the shootings. Leon Lott said his department actively continues to investigate.
