Update: Salisbury Police shoot man during search of home

A man was shot by a Salisbury Police officer Thursday night during a search of his home at Hillcrest Place.
According to a press release from the department, police had a warrant to search the home of Allen Gooden at 217 Hillcrest Place, not far from Krispy Kreme.
The Special Response Team entered the home and Gooden was shot by one of the team members during entry.
Police have not named the officer who shot Gooden yet, but said the officer is on administrative duty.
The officer, who is a veteran with the police department is doing office work, which is typical with an officer who fires at a suspect, said Deputy Chief Steve Whitley.
He was treated at the scene, then taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center and later transferred to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. Police report his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. Gooden was shot once in the side, said Police Chief Mark Wilhelm.
Hospital officials say Gooden is in good condition.
Police found 12 adults, two middle school-aged children and a 5-year-old inside the home.
Once everyone was out, the State Bureau of Investigation was called to investigate the officers involved in the shooting.
After the SBI concluded their on-scene investigation, the Salisbury Police conducted their search.
Police officers found 7.3 grams of crack cocaine in the form of 35 rocks, 8 grams of powder cocaine, 57 grams of marijuana and $519 in cash. The estimated worth of the cocaine found at the scene was $5,000.
Child Protective Services were contacted about the children being in the environment, the release says.
Charges are pending against Gooden. More charges may be filed against other people in the home.
