♦ Saturday residents living in the area of around 445 Jackson Road heard a gunshot around 9:29 p.m. and called 911. When Sheriff’s Office deputies showed up, they learned a weekend gathering had taken place at 445 Jackson Road outside of Rockwell. A number of vehicles sped away from the Jackson Road home immediately after the shooting. The deputies found Darious Marquis Robertson, 25, who lived at the house, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the right calf.

Investigators questioned Robertson about the shooting, but allegedly Robertson proved uncooperative and did not respond to questions. The wounded man was transported to Carolinas HealthCare System Northeast in Concord for treatment. His gunshot wound is said to be not life threatening.

The shooter’s weapon was said to be a handgun. As yet no motives were provided and no suspects are announced. The case remains under investigation.

It is not known if this shooting is related to the uptick of gang violence allegedly occurring in Salisbury said to be a battle between the Bloods and the Crips.
