SALISBURY — The residents of a South Shaver Street home said it sounded “like a bomb going off” when gunfire rang out in front of their home Saturday morning.
The couple, who did not want their names used because they fear retaliation, said the shots were fired about 5 a.m.
“Can you imagine being woke out of a dead sleep like that?” the homeowner asked. “I’m paranoid. I fear everything.”
The front door of the house was hit in the shooting, shattering the outer glass door.
On Monday, glass was still wedged between the cracks in the wood porch and a bullet hole could be seen in the home’s wooden door.
“It’s a scary situation,” he said. “I have two little ones. You don’t expect bullets flying at your house.”
Salisbury Police said it appears three shots were fired at a 2010 Kia Forte that was parked in front of the couple’s home.
An incident report said the door was hit by a bullet that ricocheted off the vehicle.
The interior of the vehicle was covered in bits of shattered glass on Monday. The front passenger window and the rear driver’s side window were both shattered from the gunfire.
No one was in the car at the time and no injuries have been reported.
Officers said they got the call about the shooting at 5:12 a.m.
Salisbury Police said they are continuing to investigate the incident.
