SALISBURY — Police are analyzing video footage after a shot was fired into the air during a confrontation near the intersection of Standish Street and Brenner Avenue.

Salisbury Police spokesman Lt. Lee Walker said a man with a gun approached another man around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and pointed the gun at the second man’s head. The first man asked about money he was owed, raised his gun in the air and fired a single shot in the air.

The incident was recorded on video, Walker said.

Police have identified the suspect but haven’t released his name and are doing follow-up work on the case.

The man who fired the shot returned to a car and drove off, Walker said.
