SALISBURY — A Salisbury man who was shot over the weekend in a drive-by shooting was arrested and charged later the same evening for causing a disturbance at a homeless shelter, Salisbury police officials said.

Santario Tramon Johnson was shot in the buttocks during the incident just before 1 p.m. Saturday at 707 Victory St. He was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center, where he was treated and released. Salisbury police said officers returned to the Victory Street home after a report of fighting in the area. Police broke up a fight and took Johnson to the shelter at 217 N. Long St. about 6 p.m.

Johnson was arrested after he cursed, yelled and tried to fight others at the shelter, said police Capt. Shelia Lingle.

Johnson, 27, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $2,500 secured bond.

Two teenagers were charged with their involvement in the drive-by Victory Street shooting. Both remain jailed.
