NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) - Authorities in South Carolina are searching for suspects in the fatal shooting of a woman whose body was found in a ditch.

Coroner Laura Kneece told news outlets 40-year-old Sharonda Sims was found unresponsive in a ditch early Tuesday morning with at least two gunshot wounds.

Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster says deputies were in the area responding to several shots fired calls. He says a third call came in about the woman’s body.

Foster says the calls are connected and reported incidents that were about half a mile apart.

Foster says an investigation is underway.
