— Shots were fired into a Rock Hill woman’s home Thursday night while she watched a movie with her family, according to police.

The woman, 31, called authorities after hearing something hit the door of her South Confederate Avenue home at about 9:30 p.m., according to a Rock Hill police report. She found a bullet hole in the storm door and then a subsequent hole in the wooden front door. The homeowner told police that she, nor any members of her family, have issues with anyone which would have prompted someone to shoot into her home.

Police could not find any shell casings inside her home, but a neighbor, 43, told police he overheard two women in a dark green Honda shouting that their car had been struck by gunfire, the report states. Police stopped the car at the corner of Summit and Saluda streets.

The car owner, an 18-year-old woman, and her teenage passenger, 17, told authorities they were traveling on Confederate Avenue when a green Nissan stopped in front of the Honda. A man reached out the driver’s side window with a handgun and began shooting, the report states. They told police several people began running from the area, but they could not tell where they were coming from or where they were going because they ducked down in the car when the gunfire started.

The Honda was not actually hit with a bullet, the report states.
