SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury Police made one arrest and are searching for another after a drug deal went bad in Salisbury on Tuesday.

Hicks told police that the suspect reportedly fired a single gunshot into the air as he was fleeing, according to police. During the investigation, police say they learned that Hicks was not truthful in his initial statement. 

Through their investigation, police say they learned that Hicks is an active marijuana distributor and had arranged to sell pot to a buyer, but during that transaction, the buyer had attempted to steal marijuana from Hicks. As the unidentified man fled the home in the Honda sedan, police say Hicks fired a single round towards the vehicle.

Hicks was arrested and transported to Wicomico County Central Booking. He's charged with giving a false statement to police officers, obstructing and hindering and discharging a firearm within city limits shotgun used during an incident.

No injuries were reported during this incident, according to police.

Park Drive in an effort to eliminate this activity in the future, according to the department. Authorities say a narcotics investigation has been initiated into the activity at that residence in an effort to identify the unidentified buyer. 

The investigation is ongoing and police are requesting the public's assistance in identifying the unidentified buyer in this case as well as the Honda sedan, which may have bullet holes in it.
