CONCORD — The Concord Police Department is continuing to investigate the murder of a Salisbury man at a weekend party. Two other people were shot but survived.

No arrests have been made.

Officials said they arrived at 351 Union Cemetery Road after receiving several 911 calls about gunshots in the area. A number of people were fighting in a business parking. Officers began clearing the area and found two people who had been shot.

Police have not identified those two people. They were taken to Atrium Health-Northeast, where they were both treated for injuries. Their conditions were stable.

One person had injuries to his back and the other, to a leg.

A third person, Willie Clarence Peck III, 31, of 1507 W. Horah St., Salisbury, showed up at Atrium Health-Northeast. He later died of his injuries.

Police officials said the business rents the space for parties. Initial reports indicate that someone from Charlotte promoted a party there.

“We continue to actively investigate this homicide,” Concord officials said Monday.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Concord Police Department at 704-920-5000 or Cabarrus County CrimeStoppers at 704-932-7463.
