SALISBURY – Two people called for medical attention, several bullets hit a house and police found a total of 28 cartridge cases after a shooting Monday afternoon near City Park.
Salisbury Police responded to the shooting near the intersection of West Miller Street and Club House Drive at around 5:28 p.m. Monday. While at the scene, a man arrived at Rowan Medical Center with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
A press release said police linked the injuries of Salisbury resident Antwaun Reynard Miller, 30, to the shooting and also found a vehicle that left the scene with bullet holes and unspecified evidence related to the incident.
A house in the 300 block of Club House Drive was repeatedly struck by bullets, some of which were found inside the house. People were in the house at the time of the shooting, but no one was injured, Salisbury police said.
An adult visitor to the park received treatment for a medical emergency resulting from the stress of the incident, according to a press release.
Police Chief Jerry Stokes said the community should not tolerate violence and several park visitors, including children, have been put at risk as a result of the incident.
âWhen our residents and visitors, and especially our children, cannot make it to one of our parks for recreational activities, everyone suffers because of those who choose to settle disputes with guns and put others at risk, âStokes said. âWe continue to see guns stolen from vehicles across our city, which contributes to gun crime overall. I encourage everyone in Salisbury whether you live, work or visit here to say something if you see anything and look for other ways to resolve your grievances rather than turning to gun violence.
Salisbury Police said they did not identify any suspects in the incident.
