— Witnesses told police they saw men pointing guns and then two cars speeding away after shots were fired at a Rock Hill convenience store Tuesday morning, scattering shell casings throughout the parking lot.

Police went to the Spot Food Store on Cherry Road shortly before noon after receiving calls about gunshots, according to a Rock Hill Police report. Officers were told that two suspect vehicles had fled the scene toward Heckle Boulevard, with one driving toward Saluda Road and the other going down Herlong Avenue.

At the store, a woman told police she heard gunfire toward the front of the store, the report states. She saw two men pointing guns at a car before they got into the back seat of a green Nissan Maxima. A man and woman were in the front seats. The Nissan then left the scene.

Other witnesses told police they saw the other car, a black Chevrolet Impala, also occupied by a man and woman, leave the area, the report states. Police could not find the cars, but they did find four shell casings in the parking lot.
