POLICE: Roughly 20 rounds fired in Salisbury drive-by shooting
SALISBURY, Md. – On Thursday night, three people were shot in Salisbury in a drive-by shooting.
Lt. Chris Davala with the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack said, “We do believe the three subjects involved in this were being sought after by some unknown criminal activity.”
The shooting happened in the area of Richmond Avenue at around 8 p.m.
We’re told about 20 rounds were fired in the drive-by. Police have since cleaned up the area, but you can still see bullet holes around the neighborhood. One stray bullet went through the doors of Price Check, shattering the glass.
Lt. Davala said, “If you think about it, the store was open, you could have just gotten an innocent bystander in the store that could have gotten struck it went right through the door.”
That door has since been replaced.
Right now, police have no suspects but they do believe a black, silver or tan colored SUV may have been involved.
On Friday, we asked police if the public might be in danger. Lt. Davala said, “There’s always a threat to the public when we start talking about 20 rounds fired into the general air.”
Salisbury residents we spoke with say they don’t feel safe knowing whoever did this is still out there.
Stacey Gibson, a Salisbury resident said, “It makes you not want to go out after a certain time.”
People who live in the neighborhood say they’re hopeful things will turnaround in the future.
A woman named Justine (who did not want to give us her last name) said, “That’s all it is, evil. A little bit of evil, a little bit of wickedness, but it will change, that’s what I’m thinking.”
The three people who were shot suffered non-life threatening injuries.
