Officers interviewed the woman driver who reported at least five bullet holes in her 2006 Honda. The woman told officers she, another person, and a 3-year-old child were in the vehicle when the shots were fired.

Gregory had been sentenced in February to time served and probation for two 2016 felony drug convictions, court records show. Gregory also had pleaded guilty to drug charges in November.
Gregory was found Monday morning by Rock Hill Police Department officers on Carroll Street in Rock Hill, said Mark Bollinger spokesman for the department.
