Salisbury Police investigating shooting death of man found in vehicle

Salisbury Police are investigating the shooting death of a man found in a car early Saturday.

At 2:55 a.m., officers got a call about shots being fired at the intersection of Old Wilkesboro Road and Brenner Avenue. They found the victim in a vehicle dead of apparent gunshot wounds.

Authorities said witnesses told them the victim had been driving a red Ford Taurus and had stopped at the stop light on Old Wilkesboro Road. The vehicle was attempting to make a right turn onto Brenner Avenue when a dark colored SUV pulled around the vehicle and shots were fired, police said.

The victim’s vehicle came to a stop as it hit a reenforced barrier on Brenner Avenue.

Authorities didn’t release the victim’s name pending family notification.

Anyone with information should call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
