GREER, SC (FOX Carolina)- The Greenville County Sheriff's Office confirmed three people were shot just after midnight on Wednesday morning at an address on South Buncombe Road and that two of those people had died.

We're told more than two dozen law enforcements officers responded as well at the SWAT team.

Deputies said when they arrived, they believed the situation may have been ongoing, and shooter may have been inside with other victims, but when SWAT made entry, the only person inside was deceased.

A second person was also found shot to death at the home. A third person with gunshot injuries had survived and was taken to the hospital for treatment, deputies said. They did not know that person's condition.

A Greenville County Sheriff's Office spokesman said they are not searching for suspects at this time because the shooting is believed to have been between the deceased.

The Greenville County Coroner's Office identified one of the victims as 38-year-old Wilmont Sonny Burroughs III. On Thursday, the office identified the second victim as 17-year-old Andrew Landon Wray of Greer. His cause of death was from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Tim Waller, communications director for Greenville Co. Schools, confirmed that Wray was a senior at Greer High School.

We got details about the scene from a neighbor who wished to remain unidentified. She fears somebody else could be involved and didn't want to face possible retaliation.

“It’s scary. This is a very quiet neighborhood and I never thought it would happen here," she told us. “All could see was a bunch of police cars and tape but I didn’t really know what was going on until later on.”

 “There was at least four bullet holes in the house that I could see. You don’t ever expect something like that around your home," she continued.

A GoFundMe has been started for the third victim, who survived.

We will update the story as more information comes in.
