Three men have been charged after police say they tried to steal marijuana from a Rock Hill man who was shot in the head, then crashed his car into a truck and an apartment building, according to court records.
Police arrested the three Rock Hill men in connection with the Oct. 26 homicide of Justin Penland, 26, of Rock Hill, said Capt. Mark Bollinger of the Rock Hill Police Department.
Penland, the father of two young children, was shot at the Mallard Pointe Apartments, and later died in a Charlotte hospital, police said.
The three suspects, Isaiah Hemphill, 20, and Donovan Allen and Shaun Welte, both 17, were arrested Thursday morning, Bollinger said.
Hemphill, the accused gunman, has been charged with murder, possession of a firearm during a violent crime, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and attempted armed robbery.
Allen and Welte have each been charged with attempted armed robbery, accessory after the fact to murder and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
Municipal Court Judge Dolores Williams didn’t set a bond for Hemphill. She denied bonds for Allen
