SALISBURY — Police are investigating an early Sunday morning shooting that left a local woman with a gunshot wound.
As of Friday, there was no suspect or definitive description for the vehicle from which shots came, said Police Capt. Brian Stallings.
The shooting occurred in the 500 block of North Ellis Street around 3:30 a.m. after a dark-colored vehicle drove up to a car where the victim was a passenger. Stallings said the vehicle was shot at four to five times and one of those bullets struck the 22-year-old woman in the thigh. There were four women, including the victim, sitting inside this vehicle outside a residence. None of the other women were injured.
The woman was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center by the driver of the car in which she was sitting. She was later transferred to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. Her injuries were not life-threatening.
Stallings said no one inside the vehicle at which shots were fired was able to provide a clear description of the vehicle from which shots came. Stallings said victims said the other vehicle a sedan or a sport utility vehicle.
