Salisbury Man Shot and Killed

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Police are investigating a late Sunday night shooting that killed a 24-year-old Salisbury man. 

Maryland State Police identified the victim as 24-year-old Irvonte C. Jones, who was pronounced dead after being transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center.  His body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy.

Police said that shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday, troopers from the Salisbury Barrack were dispatched to the 1000 block of Pierce Avenue in Salisbury for a reported shooting. Troopers met the owner of the home, who said she had just arrived there and found her boyfriend, Jones, lying unresponsive in a bedroom. Jones had sustained what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds and was transported by EMS personnel to the hospital, according to police. 

Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators responded to conduct the investigation. MSP crime scene technicians spent the night processing the scene for evidence, after a search warrant was obtained.  Investigators said they continue to interview neighbors and family members.  A member of the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office responded to the scene and continues to work with investigators.  Additional assistance is being provided by the Wicomico County Bureau of Investigation and the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit.  

The preliminary investigation indicates Jones was alone in the home when he was shot, according to police. However, a suspect description has not been developed at this time.  A motive has not been identified either. Investigators said it is unclear yet if the person or persons responsible forced their way into the home, or were let in by the victim. 

State police investigators urge anyone with information about this victim or the person or persons responsible for Jones' death is asked to contact Lower Eastern Shore Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776, or the Salisbury Barrack at (410) 749-3101.  Callers may remain anonymous.
