SALISBURY, Md - Salisbury police say an argument turned violent Saturday morning, sending two people to the hospital with gunshot wounds and causing several residents to be evacuated.

Police said that at around 2 a.m., officers responded to the 600 block of Smith Street to investigate a reported shooting. Officers said that while on scene, they were notified that two victims were being treated at Peninsula Regional Medical Center for gunshot wounds. Police said 28-year-old William Harmon Jr., and 31-year-old Tony McNamara Jr., both of Salisbury, were both being treated for a single gunshot wound to the leg. Police say the injuries were deemed non-life-threatening by PRMC staff.

Police said the investigation revealed that Harmon and McNamara were involved in a argument with 22-year-old Terrell Daronte Williams over a dog. Officers said the argument escalated and resulted in Williams allegedly shooting both men. Detectives said Williams is a resident of the 600 block of Smith Street.

Police say an arrest warrant was obtained charging Williams with attempted second-degree murder and related counts. Investigators say they received multiple credible reports that Williams was hiding inside a home on the 600 block of Smith Street.

At around 7 a.m. Saturday, police cordoned off the area and tried to negotiate with Williams to come out of the house safely. Neighbors were removed from the area for safety reasons.

Police said multiple attempts were made to have the suspect meet detectives outside of the home. However, they said Williams made no attempt to respond to requests from police negotiators. At approximately 11:45 a.m., officers were able to locate Williams hiding inside the home and he was taken into custody without further incident, according to police.

Williams is charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of reckless endangerment and two counts of having a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure.
