Fish fry argument leads to shot fired, two charged, Rock Hill police say

Rock Hill Police Department officers responded to a call of a person with a gun on Chestnut Street just before noon Saturday. The victim told police he was shot at as he jumped a fence to escape harm after a dispute over someone being at the home in the 500 block of Chestnut Street for the fish fry.

The victim told police that Sherelle Nicole Brown, 24, threatened him with a knife, then shot at him, according to a police report.

Officers saw a vehicle matching a description of the car they were told Brown left the fish fry in, a police reports states. Police saw a man get out of the car and throw something in the grass, the report says. Officers stopped the car and found that Brown was driving, then recovered a gun police said was dropped in the grass by Michael Joseph Hemphill, 35.

Brown was charged with attempted murder from the fish fry incident, police said. She is in the York County jail under a $50,000 bond, jail records show.

Hemphill was charged with accessory after the fact to a felony. He is in the York County jail under a $25,000 bond.
