♦ Gunfire broke out Wednesday around 10 p.m. at the Pop Shoppe at 1831 West Innes Street, a lightening rod in recent years for crime, car thieves, and more recently an A.L.E. raid on alleged electronic gambling machines.

According to Eric, a 22 year-old Pop Shoppe clerk, an argument broke out between two groups of young Black males at the Pop Shoppe’s front door. The clerk called 911 and the Salisbury Police answered the call. The clerk informed an officer that one of the males involved in the argument got in a black Chevvy Impala and fired two shots as he pulled out of the Pop Shoppe lot. It is not known at this time if anyone was struck. The other males took off on foot before the police arrived.

At this time no suspects or arrests were reported.

If you have any information about this incident please call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or the Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
