ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina sheriff plans a news conference to discuss developments in an unsolved case in which four people, including two teenagers, were shot and killed in July 2015.

A task force of local, state and federal investigators was formed last year to investigate the deaths. An announcement says Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell plans to meet with reporters at noon Thursday.

Authorities say that 17-year-old Shamekia Sanders, 14-year-old Tamara Perry and 28-year-old Krystal Hutto all died of bullet wounds to the head in the July 15, 2015, shootings at a home outside of Holly Hill.

Fifty-year-old Jerome Butler also was killed, while an 8-year-old boy was critically injured.

Ravenell has said that drugs were being sold from the house where the slayings occurred.
