”It’s sickening. It’s absolutely sickening,” says Matthew Ostrowski, one of the Trump supporters on the bridge.

Three males “drove by more than once, making derogatory remarks and yelling obscenities at them from their vehicle.,” police said. “All of a sudden you know bang bang bang bang bang bang bang” says Ostrowski.

“It was ridiculous. There were kids everywhere,” says Ostrowski. “They drove by really slow and saw everybody, so they knew exactly who was there.”

Fort Mill Police detailed what happened: “On Monday, August 24, 2020, at approximately 6:50PM, Fort Mill Police Department officers were dispatched to the area of I-77 and Sutton Road, in reference to a report of shots fired in that area.

Upon their arrival, officers spoke with several people that stated they were present at a political gathering, in that area of Sutton Road, when three male subjects drove by more than once, making derogatory remarks and yelling obscenities at them, from their vehicle.

The victims also stated that, as the vehicle turned from Sutton Road on to the ramp to northbound I-77, the driver of the vehicle continued yelling and then extended his arm through the window, while holding what appeared to be a handgun.

The victims further stated that, at that moment, they heard several shots fired, and the vehicle then proceeded northbound on the Interstate.

As the incident was taking place, an SCHP Trooper was approaching the area, observed the activity, and proceeded on to I-77 in an effort to locate the vehicle. Shortly afterward, the vehicle was located, abandoned, in the area of Gold Hill Road and Deerfield Drive.

While out with that vehicle, officers observed another vehicle attempting to leave the area, and noticed that clothing worn by one of the occupants matched that of one the suspects in the incident. That vehicle was stopped by officers nearby, and the investigation continued.

Upon further investigation, and the recovery of evidentiary material, two of the male subjects were released. The driver of the vehicle, Marquise D. Asomani, 23 years old, of Charlotte, was taken into custody and is currently being held.

Ansomani was charged with the following:

Assault & Battery High & Aggravated  6 Counts

Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol 1 Count

Pointing & Presenting Firearms  – 1 Count

Poss of a Firearm During a Violent Crime – 1 Count”
