A Rock Hill woman is facing an attempted murder charge after Horry County police said she shot at her boyfriend at his Conway home, according to a police report.
Nina Cook Williams, 60, of Rock Hill, was charged with attempted murder and is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center pending a bond hearing, according to jail records.
The charge stemmed from Horry County police being called about 6 p.m. Tuesday to a home on Mule Trace Drive for a domestic dispute, according to the report. Officers learned the 57-year-old man and his girlfriend had argued and he got into a car and went to leave and she shot at him.
The man told police Williams grabbed his gun and shot at him, so he sped away, but two of the six shots struck his vehicle, according to the report. The victim was not hurt.
Williams told police that the victim had threatened to kill himself earlier in the day and wrote a suicide note to her, according to the report. Williams told officers that she argued with the man because she had contacted his ex-girlfriend and told her of the suicide note. Williams said the man demanded she call the other woman back so he could speak with her.
Williams said the victim has a no contact order from the ex-girlfriend because he was charged with criminal domestic violence stemming from an incident with the woman, according to the report. Williams said the man has used her to communicate with the other woman and he threatened to kill himself if she didn’t call the woman.
Williams said she agreed to make the call, but insisted she be allowed to listen to the conversation. After she called the woman, Williams said the man took the phone, got in his vehicle and locked the doors, according to the report. Williams said she got upset, got the gun and shot at the vehicle.
The man agreed to go with EMS for psychiatric evaluation and police arrested Williams.
