— At least six shots were fired at a Rock Hill man as he ran into his house and hid in a back bedroom after the alleged gunman accused him of “messing around” with his girlfriend on Friday, police say.

Officers were sent to a Booker Street home, off Crawford Road, at about 6:40 p.m. after a man, 31, reported that he was sitting inside his house when he heard a knock at the door, according to a Rock Hill police report. When he went outside, he saw a man, 22, standing on the front porch. The younger man began questioning the resident about a relationship with his girlfriend.

After the victim denied being involved with the man’s girlfriend, the suspect reached into his right pants pocket. The victim shut his door and started running towards the back of his house. As he was running, he told police he heard at least six shots fired into the home. He hid until the gunfire ended.

No one was injured in the shooting.

Two bullets hit the house, one of them lodging into the sheetrock and the other going through the front shutter and lodging into the sheetrock. Police were unable to find the gunman.
