GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Greenwood County Sheriff said a fatal shooting started with a 911 call from Bryan Sweatt.

"At approximately 5:54 we got a 911 call from an individual threatening to harm himself," Sheriff Tony Davis said.

Davis said the call came from a mobile home on Callison Highway.

In the 911 call you can hear cries for help in the background and Sweatt admitted to having a weapon.

Davis said moments after the call, another frantic call came in from a neighbor saying four children had shown up at her door claiming a shooting just happened at their house.

Davis said the SWAT team and a negotiator were called out, but by the time they got there it was too late.

"Upon entering the residence we found six bodies," Davis said.

He said five family members were executed including Chandra Fields, her parents Richard and Melissa Fields, as well as her nephews, 9-year-old William Robinson and 11-year-old Tariq Robinson.

Davis said the sixth person who died was the gunman, Bryan Sweatt, who is Chandra's boyfriend. He said Sweatt killed himself after shooting the five others.

A background check on Sweatt showed a lengthy criminal past including burglary, DUI, forgery and larceny charges. Davis said Sweatt was awaiting trial in the burglary and grand larceny case from April, which he was out on bond in connection with. He said Sweatt did not have any upcoming court dates set though his trail was imminent.

If he had been found guilty in the first-degree burglary case, Davis said Sweatt faced a minimum of 15 years in prison.

The family of the five victims has set up a memorial fund to help with funeral and other expenses. The fund is set up as "Jade Spencer for Fields/Robinson Memorial fund" and donations can be made at any Wells Fargo branch.
