ROCK HILL, S.C. —

A man and woman were coming home from buying groceries when gunshots rang out.

The Rock Hill man was shot several times in his own driveway. Then the stranger turned the gun on his girlfriend.

Sheneka Carter lives across the street of the victims on Haigler Street and heard the shots.

"I heard two gunshots, and when I looked out the window. I really didn't see anything, and then later I saw the ambulance," Carter said.

On Tuesday, rain-smeared fingerprint dust was still visible on the Land Rover SUV the couple had just gotten out of. Police said the gunman scuffled with Dylangen Robinson, shot him, then robbed Shyreeta Kennedy, stealing her purse, wallet, keys and money.

Kennedy described the gunman as wearing a black hoodie, and said he ran between their home and their neighbor's home.

Police cordoned off Haigler Street and Robinson went to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds.

About four hours after the shooting call, police came back to the same house when neighbors reported hearing glass breaking at the house.

An officer knocked on the door and a man appeared, then quickly slammed the door in the officer's face.

A back window of the house was found shattered, and police think the intruder jumped out that window and ran behind the neighborhood and vanished.

It's not clear who the man was, or if the break-in is linked to the earlier shooting.

Police brought out tracking dogs to try and pick up a trail, but they could not.

Robinson was stabilized at Piedmont Medical Center, then transferred to Carolinas Medical Center where his condition is unknown.
