Investigation into slaying of April Hall continues, no new details

SALISBURY — Police continue to investigate the slaying of a Salisbury woman who was shot early Saturday morning following what was initially reported as an assault at an 11th Street home.

April Cora-Lucille Hall, 38, was found by her partner and sister-in-law Melissa Cross at the home the two planned to move back into, Cross has said.

The home was a rental that was damaged in July when a tree fell on it.

“Our detectives are still actively working on the case following up on leads,” said Police Capt. Shelia Lingle.

Police did not release further details.

Cross said April had driven from Spencer to the Salisbury home. Cross became concerned when she called Hall and heard a rustling sound in the background. When Cross got to the house, Hall was lying in the front yard with a gunshot wound.

Hall was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center and later transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where she died.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-636-5333, or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245 or online at http://tips.salisburyrowancrimestoppers.org to provide information anonymously.
