Staff reportSalisbury Police have identified the body found near Brenner Avenue as 20-year-old Demetrius Bost.
Chief Mark Wilhelm said late Monday that Bost was shot in the upper torso.
Bost’s body was found in a ditch along the 500 block of Millford Hills Drive around 8 p.m. Saturday.
Bost’s last known address was 621 W. Council St.
Investigators believe that Bost was killed somewhere else and his body was left in the ditch less than 24 hours before it was discovered.
Police have talked with several people but haven’t haven’t established a motive for the killing.
Wilhelm said there is no linkage between the murder of Bost and the earlier fatal shooting on Thursday evening of Christopher Javon Vincent, 24, of Person County at the Pine Hill Apartments.
Police have arrested two men on charges of murder, but are continuing to seek a third man who police say was the shooter.
Alkeen Aray Houston, 23, of 1417 N. Church St., and Cajuan Ali Thomas, 22, of 410 W. 15th St., Apt. 42, are being held in the Rowan County Detention Center without bond.
Police are seeking Tremaine O. Outlaw, 20, of Pearl Street.
Police say the Vincent shooting was a domestic issue. He was a current boyfriend of a Deseree Austin who lives in the apartment complex. Outlaw was described as a prior boyfriend, father of one Austin’s children. And police said Austin has a domestic violence protection order against Outlaw.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Outlaw or information on the Bost murder is asked to call Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333.
