Family Of Murder Victims Speak Out
We're learning more about the victims of Tuesday night's mass shooting in Greenwood. Family and friends are still struggling to put the pieces together after the violent act that left six people dead.
Tariq and Asa Robinson were the two young boys killed in the shooting. Their grandparents described the boys as goofy and full of life and wonderful children who love each other and everyone around them.
They were two of Chandra Fields' nephews, who were caught in the middle of what became a deadly fight between their Aunt Chandra and Bryan Sweatt, the father of her youngest child and the man authorities say was behind the shootings.
Sweatt's Facebook page shows a growing anger over the past few months at Chandra over the right to see their 7-month-old child. That frustration reached a pitch Tuesday night when authorities say Sweatt lie in wait at the Field's home on Callison Highway, Chandra's parents home, waiting to kill her her parents and the two young boys.
Greenwood County Sheriff's Department says Bryan Sweatt was not scheduled to be in court the day of the shooting, as had been preciously reported. That was something he told his family, but authorities say was not true.
Authorities also say they were diligently preparing for his trial for burglary and grand larceny.
