Just before 11 a.m. Saturday, Charleston County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to 2751 Atlanta Dr. in unincorporated Mt. Pleasant for a disturbance call.
When deputies arrived, they saw two deceased bodies in the garage of the residence of Atlanta Dr., Captain Roger Antonio, public information officer said. Deputies said the bodies were a male and female.
Deputies searched the rest of the home and found an additional two female bodies inside the home, Antonio said.
Family and friends of the victims told ABC News 4's Erica Lunsford they were reportedly a grandmother, grandfather, granddaughter and daughter.
Antonio says suspect Lovequawn Matthew Shaire Scott, 22, is in custody and charged with four counts of murder. Scott's bond hearing is scheduled for Sunday at 10 a.m.
Family and friends told ABC News 4 the suspect in custody is reportedly a grandson.
Scott, former Citadel student, was charged with possession with intent to distribute by Charleston police back in 2016 when he was found to have 30 grams of marijuana in his bookbag. The incident lead for him to be suspended from the school’s football team.
Antonio says the sheriff’s office is working with coroners in identifying the victims.
