A Folk Nation gang member being held at the York County jail on attempted murder and other charges tried to smuggle a “hit list” out of the jail to other gang members, prosecutors said.
John Brooks Hall Duncan, 24, of Fort Mill, a convicted felon who spent years in state prison, allegedly had seven York County Sheriff’s Office deputies on the list, said Chris Epting, 16th Circuit Solicitor, during a hearing over evidence Monday in court.
Police were able to intercept the list before it got out of the jail, Epting said.
Duncan’s lawyer was trying to get a witness list but a judge ruled prosecutors do not have to turn over the information.
Duncan has been jailed since March on a dozen charges, including attempted murder, assault, conspiracy, and other charges, after a fight in Fort Mill where a man was stabbed. After his arrest Duncan tried, using a third party, to get the list of deputies who worked on the case against him out to others, Epting said.
In addition to the violent allegations against Duncan, he faces seven counts of criminal solicitation to commit a felony from the attempt to try and get the list of cops to be targeted out to others, Epting said.
