Police look into drive-by shooting on West Horah Street

Authorities are looking into a drive-by shooting late Thursday night in the 1600 block of West Horah after a woman reported two people shot at her son while riding mo-peds in front of her house.
Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said the shooting was not random and the shooting was possibly retaliation for some previous incident or occurrence. No arrests have been as of Friday, she said.
The incident occurred around 11:15 p.m. while the 22-year-old victim was sitting on the family’s front porch. Two people were riding on a moped and he whistled, thinking he knew the people, but then the riders began shooting at him.
The victim was on electronic house arrest as part of a probationary sentence and thus confined to the home, Lingle said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
