The Rock Hill gunman accused of firing shots into a man’s house after accusing him of “messing with” his girlfriend last month was arrested on Tuesday and charged with discharging a firearm into a dwelling, police say.
Police on Feb. 21 were sent to a Booker Street home, off Crawford Road, at about 6:40 p.m. when 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 Quavious Jabree Rhodes, 22, standing on the front porch. Rhodes began questioning the victim about a relationship with Rhodes’ girlfriend.
Rhodes reached into his right pants pocket after the victim denied being involved with his girlfriend, the report states. 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 injuries were reported.
Two bullets hit the house, one of them lodging into the drywall and the other going through the front shutter and lodging into the sheetrock. The victim showed detectives a threatening Facebook message Rhodes sent him about two weeks earlier.
Police issued warrants on Rhodes, and he was found on Tuesday.
