Among those killed were Wright's fiancée, Krystal Hutto, and two of his children.
Hutto was 29. Another adult was also killed in the assault.
The sheriff reasoned that Wright placed his family in harm's way as a result of his involvement in drug trafficking.
The shootings occurred in Holly Hill, South Carolina last month.

The father of three children shot early Wednesday morning in Holly Hill was arrested Thursday on drug charges unrelated to the killings.
Christopher Wright, 36, of 7050 Old State Road, Holly Hill, was charged on two outstanding warrants for trafficking methamphetamine, said Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell. Wright was taken into custody on the drug charges as he was being interviewed about the fatal attack that killed two of his children and critically wounded a third.
Wright’s children, Shamekia Sanders, 17, and Alexia Perry, 14, died of gunshot wounds in the attack. The third, an 8-year-old boy, “has been taken to a secure location where he remains in critical condition after suffering a gunshot wound,” Ravenell said.
Also arrested was Robert Bailey, 35, AKA “Pockets,” of Eutawville, who was charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of cocaine, unlawful carrying of a pistol and an outstanding traffic violation of driving under suspension by the S.C. Highway Patrol. He was taken into custody Wednesday night when investigators following leads in the shooting visited his home and allegedly found “a quantity of illegal drug.”
Ravanell said the charges are unrelated to the “horrific incident” that claimed the lives of two adults and two children.
