SALISBURY — A Salisbury man faces multiple charges following a vehicle pursuit and subsequent foot chase after someone reported hearing shots fired near West Horah Street, according to Salisbury Police Department spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

Police charged Paul Kollie, 29, of Ferrell Lane, with misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer; driving while license suspended or revoked; and misdemeanor fleeing to elude arrest.

Someone reported Tuesday shots fired; an officer at the intersection of East Fisher and Main streets also heard about 15 rapid gunshots. The caller said the shots came from the 600 block of West Horah Street, Walker said.

The officer saw a silver Dodge Charger make a sharp turn onto West Monroe Street. The driver sped over the speed bumps on West Monroe Street and his car went airborne, Walker said. The officer turned on patrol lights and the siren. The vehicle turned onto Institute Street and then onto West Horah Street.

The driver pulled into the backyard of a home in the 900 block of West Horah Street and took off running. The officer eventually caught up to the man, who was arrested in the 600 block of West Horah Street.

Police searched the vehicle that he was driving and allegedly found a High Point 9mm Luger in the floorboard of the passenger area. Walker said Kollie was the only person in the vehicle.

Kollie has since been released under $5,000 secured bond.
