Two of the three men who Rock Hill Police say are responsible for a deadly shooting Friday are now behind bars.

Dontavion Qua’mek White, 17, and Maurice Lamont Burris, 17, turned themselves in to police Monday morning following the shooting that launched a weekend manhunt.

A third man remains at large, said Rock Hill police spokesman Mark Bollinger.

Both men appeared before a judge this afternoon and bond was denied.

Just before 2 p.m. Friday, officers were called to 1167 Cedar Grove Lane for a shooting. Police said then the three suspects fled in a blue Mercury Mountaineer towards Interstate 77. The vehicle and a handgun believed to have been involved in the crime were recovered late Friday off Dave Lyle Blvd.

“These were acquaintances,” Bollinger said. “So as far as a threat to the general public, we feel there is none.”
