Blotter: Police investigating shots fired into two Williams Road homes

By Shavonne Potts

SALISBURY — Police say a Salisbury woman forced her three children onto the floor of their Williams Road home Saturday after someone fired multiple gunshots outside.

The woman and a neighbor in the 600 block both had their homes struck by bullets, said Salisbury Police Department spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

The woman said she was upstairs at the home and getting ready for work when she heard the gunshots. She saw a gray “old school” sedan with two people inside. One bullet struck an upstairs closet and another struck her neighbor’s house. Police said it’s not clear if the owners of the homes were targeted.
