Investigators speak to gunshot victim

Slightly more than 24 hours after the victim of a suspected home invasion was found shot in his home, investigators were able to speak with him at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, said Trent Faris, spokesman for the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Wayne O’Neil Whiteside, 69, was found by deputies at a home on Gentry Lane in Rock Hill early Saturday morning. Deputies were responding to a report of a possible home invasion.

On Sunday afternoon, Faris said investigators did not have additional information to release about the crime.

Family members said that two men broke into Whiteside’s house, tied him up, robbed him and shot him. They described Whiteside as a disabled Marine Corps veteran who served two terms in Vietnam. The (Rock Hill) Herald
