BATESBURG-LEESVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot and killed his girlfriend at a Batesburg-Leesville restaurant, then turned the gun on himself.

Investigators say the man killed the woman in the kitchen of the China 1 restaurant before committing suicide in the front of the business.

Police say no one else was injured in the shooting. The names of the man and woman have not been released.
