SALISBURY — A tenant of a Long Street duplex underwent surgery after being shot Thursday night, according to the Salisbury Police Department.
Police said the tenant was shot at least once.
At 7:28 p.m. Thursday, a caller reported that someone had been either stabbed or shot at 1714 N. Long St. The victim, Darren Antonio McCullough, 29, was found lying in a doorway. He told authorities the shooter went back into the duplex after the shooting.
Police officers surrounded the duplex, and the Special Response Team was called in to coax the suspect out. The team used tear gas to no avail.
Officers used a bullhorn to talk to the suspect but got no response and went inside. The suspect had left the house.
McCullough was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center and later transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. He had surgery early Friday morning, a police official said.
McCullough was in stable condition Friday.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245.
