Suspects in Rock Hill fatal hit-and-run in custody

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Two suspects wanted in last week's fatal Rock Hill hit-and-run were taken into custody, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Monday.

The hit-and-run happened around 12:30 p.m. last Saturday on Heckle Boulevard at Russell Street in Rock Hill.

According to Rock Hill police, a black Chrysler 300 ran a stop sign, struck a motorcycle in the intersection, and ran up an embankment before crashing into a wooded area. The motorcyclist, later identified as 21-year-old Joshua Moore of Rock Hill, was pronounced dead on scene.

Two suspects in the case were picked up by CMPD. One of the suspects is in jail, and the other suspect is awaiting bond/extradition hearing in Charlotte.

Minutes after the fatal hit-and-run, the driver of the Chrysler carjacked a Jeep on Oates Street, police say.

The victim said the thief ran up to her while she was sitting in her 2000 white Jeep Cherokee Sport.

She told police he was screaming "they're gonna hurt me, they're gonna hurt me!" The victim said the man got into her car and drove off, as she barely made it out.

CMPD says the Jeep was found abandoned last Wednesday.
