Back in 2010 is when this story happened! SCARY!
A member of the band Parmalee is being called a 'hero' by his band mates, after a deadly shooting left him hospitalized in stable, but critical condition.
Police say a pair of men attempted to rob the band after a concert early Monday morning; the attempted robbery turned into a shooting exchange that turned deadly.
Officers were called to The Money nightclub, across from Winthrop University, early Tuesday morning around 1:10 a.m. to the report of a shooting.
When officers arrived, they found one man dead and two others injured, including drummer Scott Thomas.
According to Josh McSwain, a band member who spoke with WBTV Monday afternoon, the band was in their tour bus celebrating after their concert, when two men barged in and attempted to rob them.
According to a Rock Hill police report, lead singer Matt Thomas told police that Demario Demarcus Burris and Dytavis Hinton, both 22 years old, forced their way into the RV. One of the men had a gun and they demanded money from the band.
Thomas says his brother, Scott Thomas, came from rear of RV with handgun and ordered the two men to leave the bus. That's when Matt Thomas told police the suspects fired on his brother and Scott Thomas fired back.
When officers arrived they found Hinton laying in the parking lot between The Money and the club next door with gunshot wounds to the lower body. The body of Burris was found unconscious outside of the RV with multiple gunshot wounds. He was later pronounced dead.
Scott Thomas was found with three gunshot wounds on a couch in the tour bus, his brother Matt, by his side. Matt Thomas was holding his brother's gun when officers arrived.
