GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Daniel Graham is heartbroken because police found two women shot to death at the Extended Stay Motel in Greenwood. One of the women is his daughter, Danielle Graham.

"Nobody deserves it. Nobody deserves to get shot, period. She didn't deserve it," he said. "Danielle was a pretty nice girl. She had a few problems, but all of us do."

Police with the Greenwood Police Department said Terrance Thomas shot and killed Danielle Graham, 38, and Elizabeth Bourne, 33, at the motel Wednesday night.

"He needs to be off the street," Daniel Graham said.

Police arrested Thomas on Thursday and charged him with two counts of murder and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

According to incident reports, Thomas shot Bourne first and then shot Danielle Graham as she tried to run out of the motel room.

However, her father said her last words to him bring him some comfort.

"She said she was leaving and told me she loved me and said she would see me later," he said.
