CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Three people, including a three-year-old child, were shot and killed Tuesday in Chesterfield County, according to a news release from the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office.

The victims have been identified as 29-year-old Hailey Brown and her three-year-old daughter Sadie Grace Linton.

Cordarious Foster, 27, was also found dead inside the home on Society Hill Road in Cheraw.

WMBF News’ sister station in Charlotte, WBTV, spoke with family members of Hailey Brown. Brown’s cousin Leigh Rion told WBTV they were blindsided by the killings. Brown was a stay-at-home mom of two girls: Sadie and 5-year-old daughter. She was also engaged.

Sheila Brown, Hailey Brown’s mother, said Foster grew up down the road from their home on Society Hill Road and often played at their house as a child. Brown said they hadn’t been in contact with him for several years after he moved to Charlotte with his family.

Authorities have not made any arrests in the case, but said there is no threat to the public.

“There is no threat to the community as it relates to this tragic situation. Please be mindful that this is the very tragic situation,” the release states.

A motive has not been released.
