Report: Shots fired into moving car on Rock Hill road

Rock Hill Police are investigating a shooting on Blanche Circle late Wednesday during which a suspect allegedly fired at a passing vehicle.

Gunshots were reported just before 9 p.m. on the 200 block of Blanche Circle, according to a police report. Witnesses told officers two men were shooting on Blanche Circle toward Crawford Road at a black Dodge Charger.

Officers located the Charger on the 300 block of Blanche Circle and spoke with the driver and two passengers. The driver said that when she turned from Crawford Road onto Blanche Circle, she heard several “small pops” outside the vehicle and sped up to get away.

The passengers in the vehicle told police they saw a suspect shooting at the vehicle who then ran down a path toward Poag Street, the report states. Police found eight .22-caliber shell casings at the scene. The Dodge Charger had a small dent in the driver’s side door and a flat hole from one of the bullets.

A K-9 team was called to assist but was unable to locate a suspect.
