Police have two siblings in custody in connection with a shooting this month in Rock Hill.
Soterio Lamar Hope, 18, and Quonzy Lanard Hope, 22, of 1076 Carolina Ave. Ext. face charges related to a Feb. 12. shooting, according to Rock Hill Police.
According to police reports, the 20-year-old victim was standing outside a residence on Rich Street when two men assaulted him around 4:30 p.m.
When the victim fled into the house, someone shot through the door, striking the victim in the right forearm, the report states.

The Hope brothers were arguing with the victim, a relative of the victim told police. The victim told police he didn't know why he was shot at.
Quonzy Hope, arrested Thursday night, is being held without bond at Rock Hill City Jail. He faces charges for attempted murder, burglary and criminal conspiracy, according to police.
Soterio Hope, arrested earlier this month, is being held at Moss Justice Center in York without bond. He has been charged with burglary and criminal conspiracy.
Both men have faced criminal charges before.
A 2010 murder charge against Quonzy Hope for a 2007 shooting that killed a Rock Hill man and left his girlfriend blind in one eye was dismissed the same year, York County court records show.
Prosecutors didn't have enough evidence to convict Hope, said Willy Thompson, deputy solicitor for York County.
There was no forensic evidence to prove the charge. Prosecutors had only the testimony from Hope's co-defendant who was already serving a life sentence in federal prison, Thompson said.
Failed polygraph tests and maneuvering by the co-defendant led investigators to believe he was lying to try to reduce his own sentence.
"Any information he gave on Quonzy Hope was only his word, and his word was worthless," Thompson said.
Quonzy Hope has been arrested several times since he was 17. He has been charged with burglary, criminal conspiracy and armed robbery with a deadly weapon, and other drug and weapons related charges, according to a SLED background check.
In 2009, Soterio Hope faced weapons charges that were dismissed, according to York County court records.
