SALISBURY — An Elm Street man was charged with assault with intent to kill after he shot into a Colonial Village Apartment complex Tuesday morning and ran through the woods. Police say the shooting resulted from a domestic dispute involving an ex-boyfriend of a tenant there.

Salisbury Police charged Thaddeus Aakeem Minter, 24, of the 300 block of Elm Street, with felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, felony discharging a firearm into an occupied property, and misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon.

Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said police responded to the complex, located on D Avenue,around 11:53 a.m. after receiving a call about shots being fired.

She said Minter knocked on the back door of apartment 80 and shot at the building. Neighbors and witnesses said they heard about six gunshots and then a short time later heard about six more. Police were in the area.

Police were on the scene when the second set of shots rang out, Lingle said.

Minter was there because of an issue with his former girlfriend’s new boyfriend. No one was injured. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office set up a perimeter along Jake Alexander Boulevard, which backs up to the apartment complex.

Lingle said there is path through the woods and it ends at Jake Alexander Boulevard. Minter was spotted by police walking near BB&T. A Sheriff’s Office K-9 arrived on the scene, but officers had apprehended Minter before the dog and handler arrived.

Minter was issued a $100,000 secured bond and remains in the Rowan County Detention Center. He has previously been convicted of misdemeanor marijuana possession, misdemeanor assault on a female, and simple assault.
