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.
