The Richland County Sheriff's Department is on the scene at the Copper Beech Apartment Complex, apartments commonly used by USC students, where the bodies of two people have been found.
Deputies were sent to 1051 Southern Drive, apartment block 2100, a little before 7 p.m.
There they found the bodies of one male and one female, both shot in the upper body. The bodies had been there for some time although investigators don't know how long, Lt. Curtis Wilson said.
The Copper Beech Apartment Complex is located about 2 miles south of Williams-Brice stadium between Shop Road and Bluff Road.
More details will be reported as they become available.
