Report: Two shot in leg over weekend

SALISBURY ó Authorities say two men were shot in separate incidents Sunday, and both have refused to cooperate with police.
Salisbury Police officers dispatched to Rowan Regional Medical Center at 1:10 a.m. Sunday found Edward Eugene Sifford, 51, with a bullet wound in his leg.
Sifford told police he was walking down North Long Street when he heard what he thought was a firecracker, a police report said. He looked down and saw that his leg was bleeding, so he walked to the hospital.
He told police he didnít know who shot him and that he was fine, the report said. Sifford left before getting an X-ray of his leg recommended by a doctor.
Siffordís 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 ěchecking on his peopleî when he was shot, but didnít know who shot him, the report said. Police said Jones wouldnít provide any other information.
He was taken in his personal vehicle to the hospital, where doctors performed surgery on his arm. Jones remained in the hospital Monday.
Police talked to a witness who said a man came up to Jones and began arguing with him. The witness then heard three shots.
The Salisbury Police Criminal Investigations Division has taken over the case.
