ROCK HILL –
Rock Hill police are investigating an attempted murder where a man opened fire into a Chestnut Street home Wednesday morning while allegedly walking down the street with a woman and a child as young as 4 years old.
A 20-year-old man was sitting on the porch with two others when the gunman began firing at the group, the report states.
At least one bullet passed through a window and almost hit a person sitting inside, according to a police report. Several shell casings were found in the road.
No injuries were reported.
The assailant was identified as black man in his early 20s, about 5′ 4″ tall and 150 pounds wearing a black jacket and red shirt. The victims told police the shooting came after the man stood in front of the house and said several times “Come on, holler at me!,” then started shooting.
The victim’s brother reported to police at late Tuesday night he was the victim of an armed robbery in the same 600 block of Chestnut Street, in an incident where the assailant told him that if he reported the robbery he would “shoot up his house and kill his family.”
No arrests have been made.
