SALISBURY — Police say a Saturday night card game that got out of hand led to the shooting of a 47-year-old man at a home on Grim Street.
It was the second shooting on Grim Street in four weeks.
The victim was shot once in the chest and was taken to the hospital, where police say he is fine.
Salisbury Police responded to a shots fired call in the 400 block of Grim Street at 11 p.m. Saturday.
Officers received information that two males were fighting on the front porch of a home. There was a barbecue at a home there and the two men had been playing cards prior to the argument.
No arrest has been made, but the investigation continues, said Police Capt. Shelia Lingle.
An early morning shooting on Grim Street on March 22 left three people injured. During that shooting, James Jermaine Little, 23, of Salisbury, was one of those shot and shortly after was found lying on the back porch of a residence in the 500 block of Alexander Lane.
Henry Lee Wilder Jr., 27, of East Spencer, was also shot and dropped off at Novant Health Rowan Medical Center. The third victim, Antoine Nicholas Darnelle Cherry, 30, of Salisbury, drove himself to the hospital. Police have not released any further details in either shooting.
