— Three men were arrested early Sunday after a Rock Hill woman told police they fired shots at her.

At about 1:20 a.m., police went to a Cauthen Street home and spoke with the woman, 39, who said that four men arrived on Pitts Street talking about a chain that had been stolen from one of them, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The woman told police that “all of a sudden” two men started shooting guns at her while she was standing near Cauthen Street.

Witnesses told police the men got into a dark Chevrolet Caprice and drove toward Dave Lyle Boulevard. A police sergeant patrolling the area saw a car matching the description turn onto West White Street and head toward Columbia Avenue.

The officer stopped the car and found Kim Leonard Grafton, 25, Desmond Alexander Wherry, 23, and Quentin Mitchell, 24, inside.

Police took the victim to the scene of the traffic stop, where she told them Grafton, Wherry and Mitchell were three of the four men who shot at her, the report states. Police found a loaded gun in the car’s trunk and arrested all three men, charging them with attempted murder.

Police found four more rounds of ammunition in Grafton’s front pocket, the report states. Police are still investigating and searching for the fourth man.
