Police looking into Park Circle break-in, gunshot fired inside home

By Shavonne Potts

SALISBURY — Salisbury police late Thursday responded to a call in the 500 block of Park Circle after a call to 911 about shots being fired into a home there, said detective Russ DeSantis.

Officers arrived at the home and searched for a silver four-door Hyundai believed to be the possible suspect’s vehicle. An officer found a front window was shattered.

The homeowner told police she was in bed when she heard a window break in her living room. She got up and locked her bedroom door. DeSantis confirmed someone broke into the house and fired one gunshot while inside. Several other gunshots were fired outside the home.

The woman told police a few days before the gunshots she had a domestic violence incident at her home when her ex-boyfriend threatened to kill her. No arrest has been made as of Friday.
