3 hurt in Rock Hill when shooter sprays gunfire into crowd, police say

A gunman who sprayed gunfire into a crowd in Rock Hill late Saturday wounded three people, police said.

The gunman remains unidentified and no arrests have been made, police said Monday.

The three victims, all males, were taken to area hospitals with injuries after the incident at a home in the 800 block of Carolina Avenue, said Lt. Michael Chavis of the Rock Hill Police Department.

It happened around 10 p.m. Saturday.

“It was a social gathering of some type, and then one suspect arrived and started shooting,” Chavis said.

The injuries to all three men are not believed to be life-threatening, Chavis said.

One of the most seriously wounded victims was taken to Carolinas Medical Center. The other two were treated at Piedmont Medical Center.

The gunman appeared to have come to the party and quickly opened fire, Chavis said. The speed of the violence has so far made it difficult for police to determine the shooter’s identity, Chavis said.

“We are investigating who the shooter was and why he was there,” Chavis said.
