Authorities in Greenwood County, South Carolina say six people are dead in a murder-suicide.

The suspected shooter is among the four adults found dead in a home in the county, located 80 miles west of Columbia. Two children were also killed; the youngest victim is just 9 years old.

According to Spartanburg, S.C. CBS affiliate WSPA, the county sheriff's office was first alerted to the house after a man called dispatch saying that he was feeling "edgy." When authorities responded to the home, they found six bodies.

WSPA says the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office is calling the shootings a "boyfriend/girlfriend...domestic situation."
