— A Rock Hill man told police that a black jacketed assailant in blue jeans followed him to his home for a half-mile before shooting him in his calf on Saturday, according to a police report.

Police were sent to Piedmont Medical Center about 3:50 a.m. after they were notified of a shooting victim seeking treatment, police documents show. Charles Mobley, 25, told police that while he was walking on North Confederate Avenue he noticed a man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans following him. The man began shooting at the victim.

Mobley ran less than a mile to his home on Annafrel Street while the gunman chased him, the report states. One Mobley got to his driveway, the suspect left. Mobley ran inside his house and told his roommate that he had just been shot in his right lower calf. He told police he did not recognize the suspect and did not suffer any other injuries.

He said the man fired at least three shots, the report states. Police photographed Mobley’s injuries and the bullet holes in his pants, collecting them for gunshot residue testing. Police found three bullets at the victim’s home, one of them on the porch and two of them in the front yard. They also found a bullet hole in the roommate’s car windshield. A witness told police he heard three shots, but did not see any cars leave the area once the shots went off.

Police are still investigating.
