Rock Hill teen shot in foot during Memorial Day party

A Rock Hill teenager was at a Memorial Day party with several others when he was accidentally shot in the foot, according to Rock Hill Police.

The 17-year-old boy told police he was at a home on Crawford Road where several people were playing with a gun. Someone dropped the weapon on the floor and it went off, striking the teen’s left foot, a police report states.

The teen’s cousin took him to Piedmont Medical Center, where he met police at about 9:15 p.m.

The boy couldn’t describe the gun or caliber of the weapon. He also wouldn’t say who dropped the gun.

The teen didn’t know the address for the party, but told police it was a brick house on Crawford Road that “should have 50-60 people at it.”

Police say the victim was uncooperative. No charges were filed.
