IRMO, S.C. (AP) — Richland County officials have released the names of two adults and two young children found shot to death in a Columbia-area home.

Coroner Gary Watts said Thursday it appears that 38-year-old Sheddrick Byron Miller killed his wife, 28-year-old Kia Von Miller, and their two children before shooting himself to death.

Watts identified the children as 3-year-old Kyler Devane Miller and 1-year-old Syrai Raquel Miller. Watts says all four people had been shot in the head.

Deputies began investigating Wednesday after a relative went to check on the family and found their bodies. Authorities say the children were found in their individual bedrooms, and the adults were found together in another room.

A gun was found near Sheddrick Miller. Authorities have not said when the family died.
