SALISBURY — Three homes were fired into Friday night by what deputies say was a shotgun blast.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, a 48-year-old woman called authorities at 11:06 p.m. after a bedroom window was shot out.
The woman and another person had been in the room when the shot was fired but no one was injured.
Deputies said the home’s siding was damaged and the shot appeared to be birdshot fired from a shotgun.
Residents in the 1200 block of Gold Knob Road also heard a gunshot about 10:30 p.m., but didn’t realize their home had been fired into until two days later.
Deputies said a garage door window was shattered and the home’s siding and guttering was also damaged.
A homeowner on Barger Road was in the home Friday night when his home was shot, but was not injured and told deputies Saturday morning that he didn’t hear the blast.
All three homes were peppered with small holes, which deputies said appeared to be birdshot.
The homes are within two miles of each other.
Deputies said they are investigating the shootings.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
