An upstate couple has been found shot to death inside their home in Cherokee County. 

Cherokee County Sheriff Steve Mueller says deputies responded to a home in Gaffney Thursday to conduct a welfare check after another family member reported seeing items at the home in disarray. 

When deputies arrived, they found a man and woman inside the home deceased.

Mueller says both victims had gunshot wounds. 

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler identified the victims as Ronald D. Gallman, 71, and Linda C. Gallman, 68.  

Fowler said it appeared that the couple died within a short time of each other late Wednesday. 

Sheriff Mueller said his office is not searching for a suspect and that the investigation is ongoing.
