Police investigating Fulton Street shooting
The Salisbury Police Department continues to investigate the Thursday night robbery and shooting of DeMario “Mario” Whisonant.
Whisonant told police four people came up to him in a parking lot on South Fulton Street and asked him for a cigarette and money.
As he reached in his pocket, a suspect in a red coat pulled out a handgun and fired one shot, the report said. Whisonant fell to the ground and the suspects took Whisonant’s $40 and ran.
Whisonant told police he did not know the suspects.
One of Whisonant’s family members took him to the hospital, where he was treated for a minor cut and released.
