Rock Hill Police on Friday said a third possible gang-related incident was reported on Thursday in a neighborhood near South Heckle Boulevard.

On Thursday night, a mother called police after five boys -- two with guns -- confronted her son at their home. She told officers they "came to her residence to fight" and her son fought one of them, according to a police report.

After the brawl, one of the boys took out a gun and pointed it at her family, the report states.

The incident came on the same day as two other gun crimes that Rock Hill Police says could be gang-related.

Early Thursday morning, officers responded to calls about two drive-by shootings -- one on Habitat Court and one on Blanche Circle. Police say the third incident, which involved a fight, also happened on Blanche Circle.

A fight was also reported on Thursday on Cornelius Street around 1 a.m.

All three incidents involved teenagers that the victims say are associated with Weezy Boys -- a group Rock Hill Police has identified as a neighborhood gang.

Authorities say they're investigating all the reports of gang activity in the South Heckle Boulevard neighborhoods. Victims of the crimes gave police some information about the suspects, police records show. No arrests have been made in connection with Thursday's crimes.

Police say no one was injured during the drive-by shooting or assault involving a gun on Thursday.
