SALISBURY — A Salisbury teen with a previous arrest involving gun possession was charged this weekend with carrying a concealed weapon following a drive-by shooting at a home on West Fisher Street.
Marquise Sentiall Robinson, 18, of 200 Harrell St., was charged with felony carrying a concealed gun.
A Salisbury Police officer responded Sunday morning to a call of shots fired in the 800 block of West Fisher Street. The officer was behind a “possible suspect” vehicle when the car pulled into a driveway at 1319 W. Bank St., a department report said.
When the car stopped, the passenger jumped out and ran and has not been caught.
Around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, Lasheika Stevenson reported hearing gunshots. One of the bullets ended up lodged somewhere in her living room wall. The bullet just missed her daughter’s head when the 15-year-old opened the door.
According to court records, Robinson, also known as Pooh, was arrested in 2009 after he jumped and ran from a vehicle. Authorities arrested him at his home and charged him with resisting, gun and marijuana charges.
Robinson has previously been convicted of drug possession, possession of a firearm by a minor, rioting and assault by pointing a gun.
There is no confirmation at this time that the drive-by and the vehicle stop were connected.
Robinson has since been released under a $700 secured bond from the Rowan County jail.
