Salisbury Man Shot in the Head Declared Clinically Dead

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a man who was shot in the head early Monday morning has been declared "clinically dead."

Salisbury police on Tuesday made the announcement, saying that pending the disposition by family members, the body of 25-year-old Troy William Wilson will be sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

Police say the shooting happened shortly before 1:42 a.m. Monday. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Wilson lying face down on the ground in front of a home on 318 Charles St., and bleeding from a head wound. Salisbury EMS responded and transported Wilson to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he underwent surgery before he was declared clinically dead the next day.

Witnesses told officers that Wilson was sitting on the steps of 318 Charles St. when a red Dodge Neon was observed driving on Charles Street and stop in front of the home on 318 Charles St.  Several gunshots were heard and Wilson was observed to fall to the ground.  The Dodge Neon then sped off but struck a parked vehicle. Three males were observed getting out of the vehicle and running in between the homes on Charles Street.

Anyone with information about this incident is requested to contact the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3165 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.  You do not have to leave your name.
