♦ Salisbury Police Department sources report an unidentified woman was shot in the shoulder while sitting in a kitchen at 815 W. Bank Street in Friday at around 1 a.m. with three friends including the homeowner Dwayne Coward. Just before the woman was shot, muzzle flashes could be seen through the house’s rear window and a trio of gunshots were heard. Everyone moved for cover.

The wounded woman, bleeding from the shoulder and stunned by the attack, was transported by ambulance to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center’s E.R. Her wound was said to be not life threatening.

Police believe the house was targeted for the shooting and the gunman stole quietly up to the window with bad intentions. Police so far have not revealed who might’ve been a specific target or named either a motive or suspects. No arrests were yet made.
