      3 killed, 1 arrested in Pelzer shooting

      PELZER, S.C. (AP) - Anderson County authorities have released the names of three shot to death at a home in Pelzer.

      Sheriff's deputies took a suspect into custody Wednesday afternoon after a chase that ended when the man drove a stolen truck into a house in Piedmont.

      Deputy Coroner Don McCown says the victims were 40-year-old Wanda Anderson, 48-year-old Victor Vandegrift and 32-year-old Hank Eaton, all of Pelzer. Investigators said Vandegrift and Eaton lived in the house where the shooting occurred.

      A fourth person was wounded in the shooting. McCown said Terra Hendricks was being treated in a Greenville hospital for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

      The suspect was also taken to a Greenville hospital for injuries suffered in the wreck. Lt. Shelia Cole said charges were expected to be filed Thursday.
