Salisbury Police are investigating two overnight reports of multiple shots fired that occurred on both Lloyd and Filbert streets. One man received injuries from broken glass after shots were fired at his home.

Police said someone reported on Friday around 9:52 p.m. that shots were fired at 204 Lloyd St. The caller said they heard 35 to 40 gunshots in the area. When police responded they found 35 spent shell casings in the roadway.

Officers conducted foot patrols in the area and spoke with some neighbors, some of whom said they heard the gunshots, but didn’t see anything.

Police responded to gunshots at 1400 Filbert St. around 11:43 p.m. after receiving a call from someone in the area. Officers located 17 spent shell casings. A woman told police she saw a silver or brown vehicle similar to a Crown Victoria leaving the area in a hurry.

The woman said she didn’t actually see anyone, but just saw the car speeding away from the area.

In another report, police searched a vehicle Saturday in front of 204 Lloyd Street in reference to the shots that were reported the night before.

Summersett Funeral Home reported on Saturday morning a bullet struck an outdoor lamp and then hit the building. Police say it is believed to have been related to the gunshots that were reported in the area only because the funeral home is located at 1315 W. Innes St., in front of Filbert Street, where the shooting occurred.

A man at 1400 Filbert St. was injured after shots were fired at his home and he was cut by flying glass. He was treated at the scene by Rowan EMS.

Police officials say the shootings seem connected to each other, but would not elaborate. Police continue to investigate. No arrest has been made.
