Arriving officers found drops of blood in the breezeway of the apartment complex that led up the stairs to the door of the apartment where the assault occurred. A witness again told police that the suspect and victim had left the scene.

The door of the apartment was still open and officers searched the residence to make sure no one was injured inside.  Officers noticed more blood inside the apartment’s living room and hair laying in the kitchen, but no one was inside.

Detectives located the 24-year-old victim at Piedmont Medical Center and she stated that her boyfriend took out a firearm while they were arguing.  Detectives noticed a visible injury on the victim’s head, which is where they think she was struck with the firearm.   Detectives say the impact of the strike caused the gun to discharge in the apartment.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should call the Rock Hill Police Department.
