Suspect sought in shooting on Ivy Street turns himself in

Suspect

Shakhil Sayquon Dunn

Update: The suspect turned himself in around 5 p.m. at the Rowan County Magistrates offic.

The Salisbury Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit have obtained felony warrants on Shakhil Sayquon Dunn, born May 30, 1996, for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and also shooting into an occupied dwelling.

These charges are the result of an investigation of a shooting into a residence at 815 Ivy St. in Salisbury on April 11. Dunn should be considered armed and dangerous. Do not approach.

Police say the 66-year-old woman was shot in the buttocks and leg. Investigators don’t believe she was the intended target but say witnesses heard an altercation earlier at the home.

Authorities say one suspect brandished a gun and banged on the door asking for someone. The person who answered the door said he did not know who the suspect was looking for.

The gunman went back to a vehicle, which was described as a Nissan. Another man approached the home with a long gun, possibly a rifle, and fired into the home.

The woman was hit by a gunshot, and fire and EMS crews were called to the scene. Before their arrival, a police officer tried to stop the bleeding, said police Capt. Brian Stallings.

The woman was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center and later transferred to another hospital. She is expected to be OK.
