“Five people were killed at a home on Marshall Road in York County South Carolina. Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, his wife Barbara, 69, and their grandchildren, 9yo Adah & 5yo Noah. A 5th person, 38yo James Lewis from Gastonia, a service worker was found dead outside the home. Several of you have reached out about a manhunt over in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Here’s what I know right now. The York County Sheriff’s Office confirms ‘multiple’ people were shot this afternoon just before 5pm on Marshall Road. A manhunt has been underway ever since. The description has been very vague with the YCSO only describing the suspect as a “young black male wearing a hoodie & camo pants. The YCSO hasn’t released any information on the circumstances surrounding the shooting or confirmed how many people were shot or their conditions. SLED is assisting local agencies. As I learn more on this shooting/manhunt, I’ll update this thread. #developing”
