SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is looking for more information after a shooting between parties in two vehicles.

A witness told detectives on Sunday he and his girlfriend were behind the two vehicles near White and Sherrills Ford roads. There, shots were fired between the two vehicles, according to a department report.

The witness was traveling behind a newer four-door Chevrolet crew cab pickup that was occupied by at least two men. One man had a white hooded sweatshirt with black lettering and the other had a red hooded sweatshirt.

In front of the truck was an older “beat up” brown Toyota, either an Avalon or Camry. The witness said the occupants of the truck suddenly began firing gunshots at the occupants of the Toyota.

The witness said the occupants all got back into their respective vehicles and turned onto Sherrills Ford Road toward Salisbury. The witness put his truck in reverse and left the area.

Deputies found seven .25-caliber shell casings, one spent .25-caliber projectile and four 9 mm casings.

No arrests have been made.
