RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

The Richland County Coroner has released the names of a couple found shot to death outside a home on Coralbean Way Friday. 

Coroner Gary Watts said Saturday 50-year-old Steven Moseley and his estranged wife, 44-year-old Reynettia Moseley, died at the house.

Richland County Sheriff's deputies are trying to piece together what happened to push Moseley to shoot his estranged wife and turn the gun on himself.

Sheriff's Department spokesperson Curtis Wilson says deputies responding to a shots fired call in the Brookhaven subdivision discovered a woman and a man dead near the front door of a home in the 1200 block of Coralbean Way.

The scene is a few miles from Farrow Road and Interstate 77.

The coroner said Reynettia Moseley was shot several times in the upper body just after 9 a.m. Watts said Steven Moseley died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

Deputies believe Moseley showed up at the home just after his estranged wife dropped her two children off at school. He confronted her and then fired the shots, investigators said.

"We do believe it was domestic-related," said deputy Curtis Wilson. "That they had some issues prior to this situation."

Deputies say the woman had just moved into the home a few weeks ago.

For Ron Hilton, the shooting was a bit too close to home. One of the bullets fired across the street, made its way through the wall of his house, and into his 7-year-old's playroom.

"It went through there, ricocheted off the wall. They found it laying right there," said Hilton, pointing to the spot where the bullet landed.

Hilton didn't know the victim, and he says neighbors keep to themselves out here. As firefighters did their work, Hilton spent the afternoon patching the bullet hole and hoping his 7-year-old wouldn't ask questions.

Hilton has questions of his own, like what will become of two teens whose lives have changed.

"Now these children have to be picked up from school and told what happened. Not just one parent is gone, but both parents are gone," said Hilton. It's a senseless act."
