Man ‘covered in blood’ found wandering NC road


SALISBURY, N.C. (WBTV) – A bloodied man was found walking down a road in Rowan County Tuesday morning.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office says a person driving on Old Union Church Road called to report a wandering man who was wearing a flannel shirt, no pants and was “covered in blood.” A second person also called in to report the sight.


Deputies say they found the man, who told them he had been shot in the head. Rowan County EMS responded to the scene, but have not released the man’s condition.

The Spencer Police Department is assisting in the investigation and looking into whether the incident is tied to a reported car jacking.

The man’s name has not been released.
