Salisbury Shooting, Salisbury police are investigating what they say is a murder-suicide. Two men are dead and a female Salisbury University student is seriously wounded. Police say one of the two dead is believed to be the shooter.
Mike Schuh has more. The shooting occurred Tuesday night on Onley Road, where there are several off-campus apartments. Many Salisbury University students live in that area.
Police say two people are dead following a murder-suicide, including a victim and the shooter.
The Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office says Ryan Shallue, 21, shot Charles Abbott, 19, and Kristen Loetz, 20, on Tuesday night, then turned the gun on himself.
Shallue was pronounced dead on the scene and Abbott was pronounced dead at an area hospital. Loetz, a university student from Stevensville, is being treated at Shock Trauma in Baltimore in critical, but stable condition.
The sheriff’s office says Shallue, who was also from Stevensville, was Loetz’ former boyfriend and the pair argued Tuesday night. When Abbott intervened, the sheriff’s office says Shallue shot him and Loetz.
