A prominent emergency room doctor, his wife and their two grandchildren were among five people killed in a York County, South Carolina, mass shooting Wednesday afternoon, the York County Sheriff's Office confirmed early Thursday.

The York County Sheriff's Office said a suspect in the case is accounted for but no further details have been given as to the motive for the shooting or the suspect's relationship with the victims. It's unclear if the suspect is in custody but the sheriff's office said there is "no active threat to the community."

"The person we believe is responsible, we have found the person we believe is responsible," Trent Faris, public information officer for the York County Sheriff's Office, said. "We are with them at this time. That's all I can say about that suspect."

Around 4:45 Wednesday, sheriff's deputies responded to a home in the 4400 block of Marshall Road after receiving reports that multiple people had been shot.

Inside the home, deputies found 70-year-old Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, 69-year-old Barbara Lesslie, both with apparent gunshot wounds. Their grandchildren, ages 9 and 5, were also shot. A fifth person, identified as 38-year-old James Lewis, who was working at the home at the time, was shot. All five died from gunshot wounds, the coroner said.

A sixth person is being treated for serious injuries. Their identity was not immediately released. #WakeUpCLT
