SALISBURY — Police say they are looking for a Salisbury man wanted in the attempted murder of Corey Parnell Sims, who was seriously injured in September after he was shot multiple times at a Green Street home.

Salisbury Police say Damion Jermaine Morrow, 39, of 105 Forest Pine Lane, is wanted for that Sept. 17 shooting. Sims, 28, of East Spencer, had been shot in the head, and taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center. He was later transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center from which he has since been released.

The shooting occurred at 3 a.m. at 802 Green St., where a crowd of people were gathered. Someone called to report that multiple shots were fired.

When Salisbury Police officers arrived, they found that Corey Sims had been shot and taken to the hospital.

The initial description of what occurred was that it was a drive-by shooting, but Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said police have not confirmed that the gunshots came from a vehicle.

The shooting appears to have occurred among people at the house, but police detectives continue to investigate. No one else was injured.

Lingle said those at the home were not cooperative with investigators.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Damion Morrow is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245.
