GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) -- The sheriff says that six people found dead in a South Carolina home had all been shot in a domestic dispute that ended with the gunman's suicide.

Greenwood County Sheriff Tony Davis identified the man who fired the shots as 27-year-old Bryan Sweatt. Davis says Sweatt had dated one of the women who was killed and had a child with her.

Davis says the victims include the woman, her parents and two children. The sheriff says the shootings looked like executions.

Davis says Sweatt and the woman were in a custody dispute about their infant child. Davis believes Sweatt broke into the home and was waiting for the victims to come back.
