Rock Hill attempted murder suspect arrested in NC after being on the run 6 months

A Rock Hill man charged with attempted murder has been arrested after eluding authorities for more than six months.

Tyronne Ra’Shan Dunham, 24, of Spring Street was located by police in Gastonia, N.C., on Monday, after a shooting in June 2014 near the intersection of Sylvia Circle and Jennings Road.

Rock Hill police responded to the scene June 22 after a resident on the 600 block of Jennings Road reported hearing arguing and gunshots around 2 a.m. Later that morning, the man found his driver’s side car window shattered and a bullet lodged in the frame, according to a police report.

A .45 caliber bullet was located in the roadway.

Another man on the 900 block of Sylvia Circle said he had an altercation with Dunham after Dunham allegedly assaulted his spouse. He told police Dunham came running into the roadway firing shots in the air. Six .45 caliber shell casings were collected on Sylvia Circle.

Warrants were soon issued charging Dunham with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, but by then Dunham was nowhere to be found. He was entered into the national criminal database in August as the search expanded beyond Rock Hill and South Carolina. That search continued until Dunham was located in Gastonia and returned to Rock Hill on Tuesday.
