Rock Hill authorities are investigating this week after a driver reported a man with a gun yelling that he was “going to kill someone” on Tuesday night while driving down South Heckle Boulevard.

The incident happened on Heckle Boulevard, near Albright Road, around 10:45 p.m., according to a Rock Hill police report. A driver called police to report that a man in his early 20s with dreadlocks was driving a late 2000s-model Chevrolet Impala and had yelled that he was “going to kill someone tonight.”

The man then presented a gun and stuck his hand out of his car window while pointing the gun at the ground, according to the report. The other driver told officers that the man with the gun did not point the weapon at him.

As the man drove off, the driver briefly followed him, telling police that he last saw him turn onto Russell Street. He was able to provide officers with some numbers from the man’s car license plate, the report states.

Police immediately searched the area but could not find the suspect. Officers are continuing to investigate, according to the report.
