The gun misfired at one point, but only hit a pillow. In the end, nothing was stolen and, luckily, no one was injured.
From an article:
Around 5:30 p.m., police went to a home on the 1100 block of Ellen Avenue after receiving calls about a burglary. There, they spoke with a 34-year-old woman who said she and her youngest daughter, 7, saw a “figure” walk by her front window, according to a Rock Hill police report. When they went to investigate, they saw a man near the backdoor.
When she asked the person what he was doing, the man pointed a shotgun at her. She slammed the door, grabbed the child and ran into her daughter’s room, where other children were sleeping, the report states.
The man, wearing a panda mask, kicked in the door, breaking the locks, and ran into the room before demanding that the woman give him money. The gunman held his weapon at the 12-year-old girl when her cell phone lit up, according to the report. When he tried to rack the gun, a bullet fired and hit a pillow on the bed. He then left when the older woman told the girl to call the police.
