Investigators say Belcher called 911 to alert them to come to the scene where he was found dead around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday. Coroner Ronnie Ashley says that Belcher had two gunshot wounds. 

An autopsy for Belcher will be held Tuesday.

Ashley says he didn't know the relationship between the two people, but the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office is investigating Rayford's homicide.
