SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police have arrested three people in connection with a weekend shooting that left a 23-year-old man seriously injured. 

At around 2 a.m. Sunday, staffers at Peninsula Regional Medical Center contacted the Salisbury Police Department to report that a man was being treated for a single gunshot wound. Officers and detectives arrived at the hospital and met with the victim, along with medical staff.

According to police, a preliminary investigation revealed 22-year-old Ashley Cannon of Laurel, Del., drove 22-year-old old Douglas Schoolfield of Salisbury, and 20-year-old Luquan Brittingham of Pocomoke City, Md., to the victim's home on the 900 block of North Division Street. Police said Schoolfield and Brittingham then got out of the car at the victim’s home, approached him and shot him once in the mid-section. The victim was able to run back into his home while Brittingham, Schoolfield and Cannon fled the area in Cannon's car.

Authorities said that within hours, Salisbury police detectives and members of the Capitol Area Regional Task Force were able to arrest Cannon, Schoolfield and Brittingham for their involvement in this incident.

Search and seizure warrants were completed, which police said resulted in additional evidence being obtained.

As a result of the investigation, the suspects were charged as follows: 

- Schoolfield was charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, firearm use in a felony-violent crime, first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. 

- Brittingham was charged with attempted first-degree murder, conspiracy- attempted first-degree murder, first- and second-degree conspiracy- assault, as well as first- and second-degree assault. 

-  Cannon was charged with conspiracy- attempted first-degree murder, conspiracy- attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and firearm use in a felony-violent crime.

Schoolfield and Brittingham are both being held without bond while Cannon is being held on $250,000 bond. 

Police said the victim is currently being treated at PRMC for his injuries which are considered serious, but not life-threatening.

The investigation is currently ongoing. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (410) 548-3113, or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
