♦ Salisbury Police sources report that Sarah Allison Bell, 66, was shot last night at around 11:57 p.m. at her home at 815 Ivy Street by two Black males. A second victim in the house was identified as her son Shareef Bell, 22.  Two men were said to have come calling at the wrong house and shot the woman in error. The pair showed up at the front door, banging on it and brandishing a gun. They asked for someone who didn’t live there. No one in the house recognized the name. The two returned to their car and then came back to the house with what was described as a rifle and fired into the house. It was then that woman was shot.

The two men fled the area in what is believed to be a Nissan or a Nissan style car.

The woman was transported to Novant Health Rowan Regional Medical Center with gunshot wounds to the leg and buttocks for treatment before being transported to a larger trauma hospital. The woman bled profusely and were tended to by EMS and the Salisbury Fire Department.

The wounds were said to be non-life threatening.

Officers found shell casings on the street and the house’s door, walls, a window were riddled with numerous bullet holes. Neighbors reported there was a loud altercation earlier in the day at 815 Ivy Street.
