One of three people shot in a South Jackson Street house Thursday night remains in critical condition in a Winston-Salem hospital.
Dennis Alexander, 24, of Gold Hill Circle, is at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center with multiple gunshot wounds.
Salisbury Police Chief Mark Wilhelm said the shooting occurred at 729 S. Jackson St. around 11:45 p.m. Thursday.
At this point, police believe Alexander went into the house shooting a .22 handgun.
Two people who were in the house pulled their guns ó a .45 and a .357 ó and returned fire.
Darryl Sylvester Price, 19, of 1210 W. Horah St., and Raylin LaShawn Woodruff, 18, of 1333 Standish St., both sustained wounds and were taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center.
A hospital spokesman said Thursday that Price is in the hospital in stable condition. Woodruff was treated and released.
Police say in the confusion, Woodruff shot Price with a .45-caliber handgun as he ran down a dark hallway.
Police aren’t sure what sparked the shooting. Wilhelm said it may be connected to some other incidents that have occurred recently.
He said it did not appear to be gang related.
In a search of the house, police recovered the guns and will do ballistic tests.
Both Price and Woodruff have prior arrest records. Woodruff was walking with Tyrone Angle Jr., 16, when Angle was shot to death May 5 during an exchange of gunfire in the 900 block of West Horah Street.
At that time, Woodruff said he lived in Winston-Salem.
Police were unsure who owns or rents the house where the shooting occurred.
Statements from Price and Woodruff indicated they knew the occupant and were visiting, although he was not there.
The house is owned by Spencer residents John Richard and Mary W. McFee.
