SALISBURY — Two teens told police they were shot late Saturday night. Both were taken to the hospital and treated for their injuries. No arrest has been made following this incident.

Salisbury Police received a call around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday in reference to shots fired in the area of Bounce City at 120 N. Church St. Officials said while responding an officer was flagged down by two males standing in the 100 block of East Innes Street.

The pair, Antwond Glenn, 18, and Leslie Kendell Stefon Felder, 18, both of Salisbury, said they’d been shot and ran to the East Innes Street location. Both teens were taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center for treatment, a statement said.

Glenn had a gunshot wound to his right foot. He was treated and later released from the hospital. Felder had a wound to the back and was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center where he was treated and has since been released.

The statement said police responded to the 100 block of North Church Street where they encountered a large unruly crowd. Salisbury Police, with the assistance of Rowan County Sheriff’s deputies, cleared the area.

This incident comes a day after a Salisbury man was shot and found dead inside his car. Early Saturday morning, police were called to the scene of a shooting at North Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue where they found Larry Lamar Cruse, 27, deceased in his vehicle. He’d crashed into a fence at a home there. No arrest has been in this incident either.

Anyone with information into the murder of Larry Lamar Cruse or the overnight shooting is asked to contact Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245. Calls can be made anonymously.
