SALISBURY — Police are looking for a man who’s accused of slapping another in the face and firing a shot into the air during an argument on North Jackson Street Thursday.

Police say a suspect, who they’ve identified, slapped a 35-year-old man in the face during an argument in the 300 block of North Jackson Street Wednesday night and threatened to kill him.

The suspect racked his gun but ejected a bullet when doing so because one was already in the chamber. The victim told police the suspect said “this is for you” before firing the weapon. No one was hit by the shot.

Police say they are familiar with the suspect in the incident and know where he is.
