3 men charged with shooting into Chester home, injuring girl

CHESTER, S.C. — Three men have been charged with shooting at a Chester home earlier this month, injuring a teenage girl in the hand.

Chester police told local media Thursday that 19-year-old Timothy L. Franklin III, 24-year-old Jeffrey T. Hall and 22-year-old Desean Moses have each been charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, two counts of discharging a firearm into a dwelling and first-degree assault and battery.

Authorities say the shooting occurred on the night of Sept. 5. A 17-year-old girl who was shot in the hand was treated at a hospital and later released.

Officials have not released a motive for the shooting.

It is unclear if the men have attorneys.
