ROCK HILL, S.C. – Police have arrested three teens in connection with a shooting that injured a 15-year-old boy Tuesday afternoon in Rock Hill.
Officials with the Rock Hill police said the shooting happened on a walking trail in the area of Sunset Drive and Allen Street and that the victim suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach.
Channel 9 was told the victim then called his father, who called 911.
The victim was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center, where authorities said he is still undergoing treatment and is expected to be OK.
On Wednesday, police said 17-year-old Devan Anthony Johnson, 17-year-old Elijah Isaiah McKnight and 18-year-old Ahlaysha Destiny Locke had been taken into custody in connection with the shooting.
Police said Locke and Johnson are known gang members. Johnson, who police said shot the victim, walked into court Wednesday trying to hide his face from the cameras.
“I don’t want to be on TV,” Johnson said.
