♦ The shootings into occupied homes continues at a high pace. Law enforcement has voiced the opinion that a number of these shootings are connected likely through vengeance motives.  The great challenge of vendetta shootings is that innocent people are murdered or wounded when shooters go to the wrong address or shoot into an occupied dwelling.

Is the Salisbury Warzone widening?  When will Salisbury parking lots, bars, and clubs become a shooting range for a mindless payback as they have in previous years?

According to Salisbury Police sources Fawn Queonez Phifer, 37, living at 307 S. Merritt Avenue, was the victim of “all other shooting into occupied property” and “miscellaneous property damage” on Wednesday night when a red car pulled up in front of her home an fired multiple shots, damaging a window, an interior wall, and an exterior wall.  The damage to the walls and window cost an estimated $300.  A handgun was employed in the shooting.  No injuries were reported.  The crime was reported to 911 Dispatch at 11:51 p.m.

At this time no suspects have been named in this felony crime.
