York County Sheriff’s Deputes have made a total of three arrests since the early Saturday morning shooting of a Rock Hill man in his own home.

Wayne Whiteside, 69, was shot and remains in care at Carolinas Medical Center investigators say three people — including his own granddaughter — broke into his home and shot him once.

Wolfgang Liewald and Kaylan Whiteside were both apprehended in the upstate of South Carolina Wednesday and face charges of attempted murder and burglary in the first degree. Ben Smith was arrested Tuesday and faces similar charges.

Wayne Whiteside’s condition remains unknown, York County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Trent Faris said.

“Further charges on Smith, Liewald and Kaylan Whiteside may be pending,” Faris said.
