Report: Two shot in leg over weekend

Authorities say two men were shot in the leg over the weekend, and both have refused to cooperate with Salisbury Police.
Police were dispatched to Rowan Regional Medical Center at 1:10 a.m. Sunday, where they found Edward Eugene Sifford, 51, with a bullet wound to his leg.
Sifford told police he was walking down North Long Street when he heard what he thought was a firecracker. He looked down and saw that his leg was bleeding, so he walked to the hospital.
He told police he didn’t know who shot him, and that he was fine, the report said. Sifford left before getting a recommended X-ray of his leg.
Sifford’s address is listed as the streets of Salisbury.
Several hours later, police were called to the 900 block of South Jackson Street where they found Claymore Jones, Jr., 22, had been shot twice in the leg and once in the arm.
Jones told police he was there “checking on his people” and he was shot, but didn’t know who shot him. Police said he wouldn’t provide any other information.
He was taken to the hospital by his personal vehicle where he had surgery to his arm. Jones is still in the hospital.
Police talked to a witness who said a man came up to Jones and began arguing with him, and then heard three shots.
The Salisbury Police Criminal Investigations Division is investigating.
