Greenwood, SC - Three men were arrested following an early morning shooting Saturday at a local convenience store.

Officers responded to the LI'l Cricket convenience store on E. Cambridge Avenue at 6:45am after a caller told police that they saw two black males in an older Cadillac shooting at a male subject in a Nissan Altima.
The witnesses told police that the victim was leaving the parking lot and turning onto Cokesbury Street when the Cadillac pulled out from behind the laundromat across the street. A shot was heard, and the Cadillac was seen turning around and chasing the Nissan. Two men were seen in the Cadillac, and police learned that they were regulars in the store.

Upon investigation, the driver of the Cadillac was identified as Tyrus Robinson. When officers patrolled the street where Robinson was last known to live, he was sitting in an older model Cadillac with another black male who was recognized as the second suspect in the shooting. Officers made contact with the men; the passenger, Walter Hill, walked around to another vehicle parked behind a residence and tossed something under the tire. Officers detained both suspects and recovered a handgun of the same caliber as shell casings found at the scene. Because officers saw Hill apparently reach into the vehicle when he was concealing the handgun, officers asked the driver of that vehicle, who was present at the time, for consent to search the car for anything that Hill may have dropped. The driver, Roderick Jackson, declined to allow officers to check his vehicle. A search warrant was obtained, at which time officers located a handgun wrapped in a grocery bag, and a pill bottle containing several piece of what appeared to be crack cocaine.

Walter Hill, 46, and Tyrus Robinson, 38, both of Greenwood, were arrested and charged with attempted murder, along with gun related charges. Roderick Jackson, 54, of Greenwood, was arrested for Possession with Intent to Distribute Crack Cocaine.
