Four Rock Hill men face charges of discharging a firearm after police say they were discharging firearms along Columbia Avenue New Years Eve.

In a report just made available Tuesday, police arrested 19-year-old Tyquarius Thompson, 23-year-old Cordney Wilson, 25-year-old Rodney Caldwell and 37-year-old Ricky Thompson after police say they received an anonymous call saying several black men were firing shots into the air.

Officers recovered two handguns that were shashed in the backyard of a nearby residence.

Thompson also faces charges of disorderly conduct after he reportedly would not obey the commands of police.
