Neighbors speak out, following triple shooting in Salisbury
SALISBURY, Md. – What started as a quiet evening in
Salisbury, turned into a crime scene, following a triple shooting on 1st and Fitzwater Street.
“It was just a regular Tuesday evening. I just got off work at 1 o’clock and I’ve just been sitting out here all day. I didn’t hear any gun shots, sirens, nothing.”
But the night was anything but normal.
Police sirens, blood splatter, and caution tape.
It was the last thing, Josie Mojica expected, when coming home from work.
“I mean it’ scary it’s definitely scary. It’s not something that I want to bring kids into, it’s not a world that I want to live in. It’s not what it used to be, it keeps getting worse and worse,” said Mojica.
According to the Salisbury Police Department, the details of what unfolded Tuesday night, are still limited. Here’s what we do know.
A triple shooting occurred, condition
s of victims are unknown, and investigators are still trying to piece together what happened.
But for neighbors, like Kayla Savage, even the thought of a shooting near her home… worries her.
“Really concerned… because what else could happen other than that and that was major so what else could happen,” said Savage.
And after speaking with the girls, they say, they weren’t surprised about the news of the shooting.
Instead, they say, it’s something that happens far too often.
But they say, they’re more concerned with who’s around… when these shootings take place.
“A lot of kids live, like the playground is not that far so it’s concerning,” said Savage.
But no matter how many times it happens, residents say, this still hits too close to home.
“I mean it’s Salisbury, it’s so small it could happen anywhere. It’s definitely a concerning matter,” said Mojica.
This investigation is active and on-going but police want to remind people,
the area is secure and safe and there is no threat to the public.
