♦ Shootings into occupied houses have stepped up the last 3 weeks in what appears to be a payback war.  Late at night or early in the morning vehicles edge slowly down the street until they have a clear shot at window or an open door.  Then multiple shots ring out.  People get killed during paybacks.  Sometimes it’s a youngster who steps into the line of fire or is just innocently struck by an errant bullet while laying in bed. Have we forgotten about A’Yanna?

According to Salisbury Police sources Claudie Jay Boyd, III, 25, living at 117 W. 11th and EAA Properties (according to the Police Incident Report) were the victims of an “all other shooting into an Occupied property” and “vandalism” sometime around 1 a.m. when an unknown vehicle drew up beside the house and fired multiple shots from a handgun, damaging a window and exterior siding.  No one was injured this time out.  Ammunition was seized. Is there any end in sight?

According to law enforcement sources this shooting may be linked to the recent killing of Mirah Turner in the same vicinity.
