— A stolen gun was recovered at the home of one of the three teenagers suspected in the Jan. 10 deadly shooting of Michael Giddens, according to a Rock Hill police report released Wednesday.

Police found a .40 caliber Smith and Wesson while searching the Willowbrook Avenue home of Dontavion White, 17, the report stated.

A search of the serial number showed that the gun had been reported as stolen in Lancaster County.

It is unknown if that gun was involved in the shooting of Giddens, 25, said Rock Hill police spokesman Mark Bollinger. It has been sent away for testing.

White, Maurice Burris and Abdul Emmanuel are being held in jail without bond on murder charges after turning themselves in to police in the days after the shooting.
