The Kemper County Sheriff's Department is investigating a fatal shooting Thursday night.

It happened on Howard Johnson Road. One person died. Another is currently in critical condition at a local hospital.

Right now, officials are not releasing the names of the two victims, nor are they releasing the names of the two people in custody.

"I can say right now, we received a phone call last night from someone that told us that they possibly knew who did this," said Moore. "We have two gentleman who are in custody right now on investigative hold. It means that they're under investigation and we can hold them for at least 72 hours, and depending on that time. if we are going to charge them or not."

No weapons were found at the scene of the murder. However, officials say they have recovered weapons.
