ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 51-year-old man shot and killed his wife and wounded her friend in a drive-by shooting in Anderson before killing himself.

Investigators told local media outlets that James Lech was found dead Wednesday morning after shooting himself in the head about eight hours after killing his wife.

Authorities say a car drove by 32-year-old Rachel Lech as she walked down a street in Anderson and someone shot her several times in the chest. A friend walking with her was wounded and was taken to the hospital. Investigators say she should survive.

Rachel Lech was a pediatric nurse.

Investigators say they are still trying to figure out a motive.
