GREENSBORO (AP) — Police in Greensboro continue their search for a motive in the shooting deaths of two people in a townhome complex.

Authorities said 14-year-old Maurice Edmonds II and his mother, 47-year-old Sandra Palmer were killed. Palmer’s daughter, 18-year-old Danielle Jameison, and Palmer’s boyfriend and Edmonds’ father, 46-year-old Maurice Eugene Edmonds, were wounded.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports that investigators have said they are waiting to talk to the survivors to learn more about what might have caused the shootings at the family home.

Jameison is a 2011 graduate of R.J. Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem and a student at UNC-Chapel Hill, where she is majoring in psychology and romance languages. She won a UNC 2015 Distinguished Scholarship and has been on the dean’s list since her freshman year.
