South Carolina Man Fatally shot his daughter, Fort Valley State Student In Murder-Suicide Tragedy

A father and husband fatally shot his daughter before injuring his wife and killing himself during a domestic dispute according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, in Boiling Springs, South Carolina.  Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger confirmed that 43-year-old Arthur Brannon III, 43, and 23-year-old MiAysha Brannon were pronounced dead at 9:45 a.m.

Around 6:30 a.m., Brannon’s wife and MiAysha’s mother, Laquanda Brannon, was found alive outside the home by responding deputies. Brannon was suffering from a gunshot wound to her right arm and torso. She told police that she had been in a verbal fight with her husband, who then shot her and locked her out of the home.
Laquanda Brannon was taken to the hospital, where she is receiving treatment for her wounds.
According to PEOPLE, hostage negotiators appeared on the scene to speak with Arthur Brannon but could not contact him. A SWAT team was instructed to enter the house, where the father and daughter were found dead. Police believe that the father shot and killed his daughter first and then himself.

“It really just devastated us and we’re just saddened that it happened. Sorry what happened, because Art, as far as we knew he was a nice guy, he always was and he was friendly, and they were a fine family,” Kathy, who is a neighbor said.

MiAysha junior veterinary technician student at Fort Valley State University in Georgia and had a promising future.
