A Rock Hill man was arrested Sunday and accused of pointing and firing a gun at another person in downtown Rock Hill, according to a Rock Hill Police Department report.
Desmond Eltorio Cherry, 32, was arrested at about 5 a.m. Sunday after police received a report of shots fired a day earlier.
The victim told officers he was walking through a parking lot on South Oakland Avenue at 12:15 p.m. Saturday. The victim told police a man in a burgundy car drove toward him and pointed a gun at him, the report says. The victim said the man fired a weapon, and that a bullet hit the ground near him.
Officers attempted to serve warrants to Desmond Cherry at a house on Memorial Drive in Rock Hill on Sunday, the report says. Cherry wasn’t in the residence, but officers saw him nearby in the woods, the report says.
After a short foot chase, police arrested Cherry. He is charged with pointing and presenting firearms at a person, possession of a firearm by person convicted of a violent felony, driving under suspension and being a habitual traffic offender, the report says. His bond has been set at $50,000.
