BAMBERG, SC (WIS) - A Bamberg County minister was found dead Saturday morning.

Bamberg County Coroner Billy Duncan said Frank C. McNair, 70, was found dead at 1077 Spring Branch Road in Bamberg. Duncan said McNair died of a "suspected gunshot wound." However, details are limited.

The Bamberg County Sheriff's Office asked the S.C. Law Enforcement Division to investigate the case since a woman was also found near McNair with injuries. She was airlifted to Palmetto Health Richland for treatment for gunshot wounds.

SLED spokesman Thom Berry has no update on her condition. Her identity has not been released.

McNair's body was sent to Newberry for an autopsy.
