— A Rock Hill mother and her children were inside one of two homes on the receiving end of a drive-by shooting early Tuesday after she told police a pair of men fired shots into her and a neighbor’s house after knocking on their doors.

Just after midnight, police were sent to an area of East Black Street after neighbors reported hearing gunshots go off, according to a Rock Hill Police report. Two nearby residents met with police, telling them they heard pounding on their door before they heard the shots fire.

Two other neighbors met with police and said they had just returned home when police pulled up, the report states. Police saw that the front right window frame of their home had been shot and the glass broken. They found a bullet stuck in between the panes of the window.

Police also found eight bullet holes in a nearby house, the report states. Police spoke with the resident, a 22-year-old mother, who said she and her children were inside the house during the shooting.

She told police that two men knocked on her front door and her neighbor’s, the report states. She said one of the men saw her peeking through her window blinds and said, “I can see you.”

The men then got into a four-door silver Lincoln, drove up to the house and began shooting, the report states. They turned back around and fired another series of shots at the house.

Officers spoke with other neighbors who said they heard the shots but didn’t see any cars, the report states.
