The day after four people were found shot to death in a Rock Hill home brought more questions than answers on Monday.

Assistant York County Manager Anna Hubbard Moore, 50, and three others were found at her home at 985 Dunlap Roddey Road late Sunday. Also killed were Randy Eugene Moore, 55, Anna Moore’s husband; her son, Jason Lockamy, 31; and Lockamy’s girlfriend, Lora Kathryn Young, 31.

All four died of gunshot wounds. Investigators have said they are not seeking a shooter but stopped short of calling Sunday’s shooting a murder-suicide.

It’s still not known what led to the shootings, who fired the fatal shots or how many guns were involved.

The York County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation. The York County Coroner’s Office said late Monday that autopsies were still being conducted, and a sheriff’s spokesman said they were awaiting those results before making more details public.

Law enforcement officers were called to the home at about 5:45 p.m. Sunday. Later, they spoke with someone who had been inside the home.

Randy Moore has a criminal record dating back to 1978, when he was 18, according to the State Law Enforcement Division and state court records. It includes multiple convictions for driving under the influence and one conviction for conspiracy to violate South Carolina drug laws.

Court records show Young pleaded guilty in 2011 to criminal domestic violence first offense and was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Anna Moore and Lockamy do not have criminal records in South Carolina, according to SLED.

Neighbors said Monday that Anna and Randy Moore had just moved to the Dunlap Roddey Road home in the past few weeks.

Joel Puglia lives down the street from the Moores. Even though the couple had just moved into the neighborhood, he said, he had spoken to Randy Moore a couple of weeks ago when he found and returned his cellphone.

Puglia was shocked by shootings so close to his home.

“It’s quiet; this is a good neighborhood,” Puglia said. “Nothing happens around here, except kids coming down the road too fast.”

At the York County Agricultural Building, grief counselors were on hand Monday to help county employees come to terms with the death of Moore, who County Manager Bill Shanahan said had been assistant county manager for 10 years.

During that time, she supervised multiple departments, including Public Safety Communications, Animal Control and the Department of Fire Safety.

Moore also served as acting county manager for several months before the York County Council hired Shanahan last year.
