BUCKSPORT, S.C. — Authorities in South Carolina say that a fourth person — a 2-year-old child — has died in an apparent murder-suicide near Myrtle Beach.

Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard tells local media that three people were found shot to death early Saturday in a home in rural Bucksport. They were 51-year-old Keith Davis; 40-year-old Kristina Burroughs and 10-month-old Justice Burroughs, who was Kristina Burroughs’ niece.

Willard says a fourth victim died Sunday afternoon in a local hospital. She is identified as 2-year-old Katylin Bellamy.

All four lived together.
