SUMTER, SC (WIS) - A South Carolina man is dead after a domestic incident early Tuesday, the Sumter County Sheriff's Office said.

Tony Odell Odom, 60, shot and killed himself after he shot his 48-year-old wife. His wife told deputies that Odum has been drinking and was “not himself” prior to the shooting.

She went on to say that Odom went to a bedroom inside their home around 3:45 a.m. and returned with a pistol. She says her husband shot her three times. She fled as she heard the fourth shot but was unaware of what he was shooting at.
