No charges have been filed in a Monday shooting near Rock Hill that left a man dead. And while officials remain tight-lipped about what led to the shooting, they say there is no danger to the community.
York County deputies responded around 10 a.m. Monday to a shooting at 745 Oleen Cove Road, west of Rock Hill. There, they found 30-year-old Michael Tyson Dilda dead of a gunshot wound, according to the York County Coroner’s Office.
Coroner Sabrina Gast said Dilda’s death is being investigated as a homicide. Autopsy and toxicology results are pending.
No charges have been filed, but detectives have been speaking with a person of interest.
“We still have a person of interest that we’re talking to and charges are pending,” said Trent Faris, a spokesman for the York County Sheriff’s Office. He added that there is no danger to the community.
Faris could not provide additional information about the investigation.
David Youmans lives near Oleen Cove Road and was out walking his dog Monday morning when he heard sirens. He saw patrol cars, then an ambulance and then more patrol cars pull onto Oleen Cove Road.
“It seemed like after that, every few minutes, more came in,” he said.
Youmans has lived in the area a few miles outside of Rock Hill city limits for 28 years, and said visits from law enforcement are rare. Dilda had only lived in the home for about two months.
“It’s a quiet neighborhood,” Youmans said. “You can hear it now; there’s no noise. We pretty much know everybody.”
Faris said the only recent call for service that the sheriff’s office had at the home was several months ago.
Family members of Dilda, seen leaving the home Tuesday, declined to speak with reporters.
