A man remains in critical condition as Salisbury Police continue to investigate a weekend double shooting turned murder that occurred behind the J.C. Price American Legion Post building.

No arrests have been made, and investigators are seeking the public’s help.

Police were called to the Legion building, 1433 Old Wilkesboro Road, at 1:44 a.m. in reference to a fight at a party there. While en route they received information that someone had been shot.

Officers found Antoine Terrell McGee, 29, and his brother, Devon Daniel McGee, 24, lying in the field behind the building. Both brothers had been shot and were taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Devon McGee died sometime later. Antoine McGee remains in critical condition at the Winston-Salem hospital.

Police investigators ask anyone with information in this crime to come forward. Calls can be made anonymously.

About 10 years ago, Antoine McGee was one of nine charged with the May 2006 beating and shooting death of Anthony McFadden. McGee pleaded guilty in February 2008 to assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He’s also been convicted of felony drug possession and breaking and entering into vehicles.

In 2007, Devon McGee, along with his mother, Valerie Denise McGee, also known as Valerie Denise Miller, and three of his brothers were charged with involvement in a series of home break-ins. Devon McGee was 16 a the time of those crimes.

When asked about the motive and whether the crime was gang related, Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said it is still under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
