GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Deputies say a woman appears to have stabbed her 49-year-old brother to death in self-defense in a home in Greenville.

Authorities told media outlets that officers were called to the home to investigate a stabbing around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

The coroner’s office said 49-year-old Gary Gossett died at the scene.

Deputies say an initial investigation shows Gossett was stabbed by his sister after attacking her, but officers will consult with prosecutors before declaring the stabbing self-defense and closing the case.

Authorities did not release the name of the sister or why Gossett may have attacked her.
