SALISBURY — Police say no arrests have been made in two early morning shootings that they say were unrelated. Both male victims, who are thought to have life-threatening injuries, remain in the hospital and are being treated.

Salisbury Police responded at 3:27 a.m. to 1710 Second Street after a call about someone who was shot. Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said the shooting did not occur at that address, but the victim, William Kerr Jr., ran to that location.

Lingle said the shooting occurred at 322 W. C Street, located around the corner, at a home where Kerr was living. He was shot multiple times in his lower extremities. The 31-year-old was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center and then transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

The second incident occurred at 3:38 a.m. at 211 E. Bank St., where police responded to a call about someone who’d been shot inside the home there. Police found Amarillo Deshaun Bryant, 34, who does not live at that address shot “more than once,” Lingle said.

He was initially taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center and then transferred to Carolinas Medical Center.
