SALISBURY — A Salisbury man is in jail after police say he shot at his ex-girlfriend’s father across South Main Street.
The Salisbury Police Department said officers were dispatched Monday afternoon to Lancaster’s Car Wash on South Main Street for shots fired after numerous people called 911 to report a man with a gun shooting across the street.
When officers arrived, they found Thomas Jerome Hosch, 28, and his gun, a .380 caliber, which Hosch had tossed on the sidewalk. They determined the gun was stolen from a home in Laurinburg.
Officers spoke to the father of Hosch’s ex-girlfriend, Anthony Wallace Jr., who told them Hosch was at the car wash and had started an argument with him. The report said Wallace walked back toward the house and Hosch fired several bullets his way, but he was never hit.
Hosch was charged with felony possession of stolen goods and assault by pointing a gun. He was given a $5,000 secured bond.
