The mass shooting on Wednesday evening left five people, including two children, dead, authorities said.

The York County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect was found in a nearby home. Officials had not released any details about him though, and couldn’t say what the motive for the shooting was.

“We have ID’d the person we feel is responsible for the shooting on Marshall Rd. We found him in a nearby house. There is no active threat to the community,” the York County Sheriff’s Office tweeted.

The York County coroner’s office said Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, and his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69, were pronounced dead at the scene along with grandchildren Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5.

The shooting happened at the Lesslie’s home, deputies said.

A fifth victim, James Lewis, 38, from Gastonia, was found dead outside. Authorities said he had been working at the home when he was shot.

The coroner said all five deaths have been ruled homicides.

York County Sheriff’s Office’s spokesperson Trent Faris said a sixth person was hospitalized with “serious gunshot wounds.”


On Thursday morning, Channel 9 reporter Ken Lemon confirmed that Lewis worked at Gaston Sheet Metal Services in Gastonia and that the person who survived the shooting was also an employee at GSM Services.

A note letting customers know the business was closed Thursday was posted on the front door, saying, ”Our team at GSM Services is heartbroken from the events that transpired yesterday evening in York, SC. Both men involved in this incident are long-standing, beloved members of our family at GSM. These men embody the values we strive to achieve at GSM and are family focused, up-beat, and wonderful team members who cared about all the people they encountered. In the coming days, our focus is on helping these families and our team members cope with this tragedy ... Please continue to keep our families in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days.”

Faris said deputies were called around 4:45 p.m. to the home on Marshall Road in the Rock Hill area.

In a news release, the York County Coroner’s Office said it responded to the home “to investigate multiple deaths at the residence.”

“We are shocked that this type of incident happened here,” Faris said. “It doesn’t happen here. It’s one of those strange things that a lot of people are going to have a hard time understanding and we just hope that everybody understands that we’re going to do everything we can to try to figure out why this happened here in Rock Hill, South Carolina.”

The sheriff’s office spent hours searching for the suspect before finding him. It’s unclear exactly when the suspect was found, but authorities held a news briefing after midnight.

Shortly after the shooting, the York County Sheriff’s Office tweeted that detectives were searching for a man wearing a black hoodie and camo pants who was last seen in the area. Officials said he was possibly armed and dangerous and residents needed to lock their doors and stay inside.

“One of those people that everybody knows”

Faris said Lesslie was a prominent figure in Rock Hill and very well-known.

“I’ve lived in Rock Hill my entire life and Dr. Lesslie was my doctor growing up,” Faris said. “Dr. Lesslie has been one of those people that everybody knows. He started Riverview Medical Center in Rock Hill and it’s been a staple in Rock Hill for years.”
