Woman injured when bullets flew into her home in Rock Hill


A mother in Rock Hill is injured and tense after someone fired more than 30 shots at her home Tuesday morning.

The victim says one of those bullets came dangerously close to her and her three children, and now Rock Hill detectives are working to solve the case.

Police say someone drove past the house around 5 a.m. on Tuesday and fired shots. Channel 9’s Tina Terry went to the house and found bullet holes through several windows. Some of those bullets entered a living room and bedroom where they had been sleeping. The mother showed where broken glass ended up in her arm.
