Three charged after shots fired on Standish Street

SALISBURY — Three men were charged Saturday after shots were fired on Standish Street.

When police officers arrived on the scene at 9:32 p.m., one of them saw three men in the street walking toward a Ford Explorer with their hands in their pockets, the Salisbury Police Department said. A report said the police officer smelled gunpowder.

The men were ordered to get on the ground. A firearm fell to the ground near where one of the men, Malik Lyles, was standing, the police report said. Another gun was found during a search of Victor Lyles, according to police.

An officer’s body camera was turned on during the arrests.

Malik Lyles, 22, of Spencer, was charged with carrying a concealed pistol and violations of city codes.

Victor Lyles, 20, of Spencer, was charged with simple possession of marijuana and carrying concealed weapons.

Isaiah Devine Phifer, 18, of Salisbury, was charged with resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer and carrying a concealed weapon. An arrest report describes the type of weapon for which Phifer was charged as “lethal cutting” rather than a handgun.
