GREENWOOD, SC (WSPA) – Three men have been arrested after a shooting Saturday morning at a convenience store in Greenwood.

Walter Hill, 46, and Tyrus Robinson, 38, are each charged with attempted murder and gun charges.

Greenwood police say witnesses reported that two men in an older Cadillac shot at a man in a Nissan Altima at the Li’l Cricket on East Cambridge Avenue around 6:45 a.m. Saturday.

Witnesses told officers that the victim was leaving the parking lot to turn onto Cokesbury Street when the Cadillac pulled out from behind the laundromat across the street. Witnesses heard a shot and saw the Cadillac chase the Nissan.

Officers say the two men in the Cadillac were regulars at the store.

Police say they were able to identify Robinson as the driver of the Cadillac and found him in an area where he was last known to live in a Cadillac with Hill, who was recognized as the second suspect in the shooting.

Police say Hill was seen putting something under the tire of a second car parked at the scene. Officers recovered a handgun of the same caliber as the shell casings found at the shooting scene.

Officers say Hill reached into the car before he hid the gun. Police say they found a handgun wrapped in a grocery bag and a pill bottle with several pieces of crack cocaine.

The driver of the second car, identified as 53-year-old Roderick Jackson, was charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.
