Hey so i had this injury about 2 months ago, was in the gym doing shoulder press with 40s 8 reps and on the 5-6 rep i felt my left shoulder move in a weird way not a crack,rip or anything it just moved weird, i continued, next set lowered my weight and this time i felt it TWICE on about the 3 rep and then again on 5 rep or something after that my shoulder hurt, tried to do one more set of the next exercise but i thought about it and i called it a day, next day i barely could put my arm in shoulder press position because of the pain, 1-2 weeks later pain went down, but it still hurt pushups, pullups, etc... its been about 2 months now, and through careful rehab exercises i did the first month and then some safe training i did, during the 2 month like my routine went like this chest and shoulder 2 rest days in which i did jump rope/abs, back and biceps, rest day, triceps, rest day, legs, rest day i did abs during the rest days, i chose exercises carefully and i am not pushing myself to the max yet hopefully will be fine after Christmas, my shoulder i feel its about 90 percent healed im still being careful, this week it'll be my "recovery week" in which im only doing legs and abs and some stretching. So i don't know what do you think..
I would have a doctor look at it. Maybe an MRI just to be on the safe side.

Sorry to tell to you but your not going to be able to get an exact answer here. You would have to be examined. You could of just torn or over streched a muscle. Not sure if you feel pain that low with a rotator cuff problem.
Cut all pullups/chinups. It is terrible if you have a precondition on the acromium/clavicular zone.
Try to really pinch your shoulder blades together while you bench press and don't do any kind of shoulder protraction.
Google Shoulder Savers on the net. It is very useful.
