Rowan Sheriff’s Office investigating morning shooting into Salisbury home
By Shavonne Potts
SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a Monday morning shooting into a Salisbury home.
Officials said it’s the second time this same home has been shot into in two weeks.
Deputies were called to the 100 block of O’Hara Drive at 2 a.m. about shooting into the home. Deputies found several gun shell casings in the roadway in front of the house, said Rowan Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford. It’s believed a young man who lives with his parents at the address is the target, Sifford said.
The man had just gone back into the house when the shooting began, Sifford said.
The parents told investigators their son told them to stay in their bedroom until the shooting stopped. That’s when the father retrieved his own gun. The couple went into the living room and saw a front window shattered but neither of them saw anything.
Investigators found shell casings in the front yard of the home across the street. There were also several bullet holes throughout the living room and a front bedroom.
Investigators recovered some bullets, including one that came from a shooting two weeks prior, Sifford said.
Detectives also found several shell casings at the intersection of U.S. 601 and West Ridge Road believed to be connected to the shooting. Sifford said it appears someone may have dumped spent shell casings out of a vehicle.
There were three different types of guns determined to have fired during the incident. Sifford said they recovered 30 different bullet casings.
Anyone with information is asked to call Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
