Police still searching for suspect in Salisbury's double homicide

Businesses on West Fisher Street are still carrying the scars from Saturday's deadly shooting. A shooting that took the life of 23-year old Daquan Robertson and 22-year-old Anthony Gill and hurt three others.

"Last night, I cried myself to sleep because my cousin didn't deserve to get shot down like that. They just shoot him down," Bianca Koontz said.

Bianca Koontz says she was the last person in her family to see Anthony Gill alive before he left to go meet his friends at go burrito on West Fisher Street.

"I was Telling him about getting the kids school stuff and he was just going out the door and I said I love you," Koontz said.

Police say around 2 a.m. some sort of argument broke out in this parking lot. Koontz says police tell her the argument was started by a woman. Gill and Robertson tried to defuse the situation, then someone pulled a gun and started shooting.

"I’m angry because he didn't have anything to do with it. I'm hurt and my kids are hurting because they see him all the time. He comes and plays games with them. They won't have that no more. My 16-year-old, she said ‘it wasn't his time but why did they shoot him down like that,’” Koontz said.  

Koontz wants the person who did this behind bars and pleads for the killer to come forward.

"I got words for the killer. Just turn yourself in. Turn yourself in. You murdered my cousin down! Just turn yourself in. Don't stay on the streets, " Koontz said.
