SALISBURY —  Salisbury Police have released few details today after a man was shot and drove himself to Brenner Crossing Apartment complex.

Sharnise Cook, who said she knew the victim, told a Post reporter she received several phone calls from people saying Darius Robertson was inside her car, he’d been shot and the car was parked at the apartment complex. The complex is located at the corner of Standish Street and Brenner Avenue.

Salisbury Police did not provide a name, but did say someone was shot inside a vehicle. The shooting did not occur at the complex. The victim was transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, said Police Capt. Shelia Lingle.

Hospital officials could not provide details on whether Robertson was a patient there.

According to Cook, she was met with little information from others standing around at the scene or police. She said she just bought her car three days ago and Robertson borrowed it earlier Friday morning. Others at the scene told Cook that Robertson drove to the complex and that the shooting happened elsewhere.

She’s not sure why Robertson drove to the complex. She said he has friends who live in the area.

Cook said she didn’t think the shooting concerned gang activity and called Robertson a homebody.

Cook said she’s not shocked by the silence from others at the scene even though she believes they saw something, but just don’t want to be involved.

She said she was concerned about Robertson’s welfare and tried to get in touch with his family, but to no avail.
