Protesters Gather Outside Rock Hill Hideaway Club

ROCK HILL, SC – Protesters gathered outside a Rock Hill club Saturday night, where the owner shot and killed a customer last month.

The protesters say they want the owner of the Hideaway Club charged with murder.

Investigators say 76-year-old Mack Teal shot 28-year-old Chris Elkins early on the morning of January 15th.

Elkins later died at the hospital.

Teal told York County Deputies Elkins and his friends were told to leave after a fight.

Teal says Elkins assaulted him while trying to get back inside, so he shot him.

Elkins’ fiance says he was just going back to get her purse.

“The man who owns this bar is claiming self-defense, which is not true. I watched it happen. He had both of his hands in the air and then he shot at him again as he was running away,” says Elkins’ fiance Treasure Nalley.
