COLUMBIA — A South Carolina military veteran who had served five overseas tours has been arrested and accused of killing two men.
Multiple media outlets reported that 39-year-old Leslie Todd Parvin of Columbia is charged in the deaths.
Investigators say Edgar Lopez and Pablo Gutierrez-Guzman of Columbia were shot to death at a party July 30.
Fort Jackson spokeswoman Karen Soule says Parvin was honorably discharged last August as a master sergeant, where he served as a chaplain’s assistant.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says Parvin had served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
Lott says Parvin is not talking with investigators and they don’t know what led to the shootings.
It was unclear if Parvin had an attorney.
