3 teens in jail after shooting and car chase

Three Rock Hill teens were in custody Friday night after police said shots were fired from their car as they pursued another car.

No one was injured during the shooting, said Lt. Jerry Waldrop of the Rock Hill Police Department said.

Police charged Sharod Truesdale, 17, of 1128 Carolina Ave. Ext. with assault and battery with intent to kill; possession of a firearm during a violent crime; possession of crack and criminal conspiracy in connection with the shooting incident that happened Thursday evening, according to a Rock Hill Police Department report.

Authorities also charged 19-year-old Archie Caldwell of 414 Summit St. with assault and battery with intent to kill, possession of a firearm during a violent crime and criminal conspiracy, the report notes.

Marques Neely, 19, of 325 Baker St. also was charged with criminal conspiracy, according to the report.

The shooting happened around 6:30 p.m. Thursday near the 1800 block of Hunters Trail in Rock Hill. A male victim told police that his vehicle was being chased by a black Nissan Maxima and shots had been fired from the car in his direction, according to the report.

A short time later, police stopped a black Nissan Maxima near Eden Terrace, where an officer watched someone throw crack from one of the car windows, the report states. Police also recovered a .32-caliber gun from the roadway beside the Maxima as well as a .25-caliber gun from the front passenger seat of the car, according to the report.

Also recovered were spent .32 shell casings and bullets from the roadway near where the shooting occurred, the report notes.

A judge set bond at $20,000 for Marques Neely.

Bond on Friday was denied for Truesdale and Caldwell.
