SALISBURY, Md. - The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office has arrested four people following a shooting last Sunday at the Parkwood Apartment Complex on Beaglin Park Drive in Salisbury.

Police said during their investigation detectives learned 20-year-old Alexis Divine of Princess Anne, 20-year-old Xavier Townsend, 17-year-old Javon Rouse and 18-year-old De’Mir Smullen, all of Salisbury, had conspired to rob the two victims.  Police said the first victim had previously agreed to sell Divine marijuana. Divine and Townsend told Victim #1 and Victim #2 to meet at the Parkwood Apartment parking lot.

Police said when they arrived, Victim #1 met with Alexis Divine. During the meeting, Javon Rouse approached Victim #1 with a gun and demanded the drugs.  Police said during this confrontation, Rouse shot Victim #1 multiple times.

Police said Victim #1 fled the area and was picked up by Victim #2. Victim #2 drove to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where Victim #1 was treated for gunshot related injuries.
