Snow Hill Man Shot At Glen Burnie Mall
Police had no information on what the victim was doing at the mall at the time of the shooting.
The assailants, described as two black men, one of whom might have had dreadlocks, drove off in a dark gray Honda or a similar vehicle, south on Ritchie Highway.
Two male friends of the shooting victim drove the man south on Ritchie Highway in a Honda Civic to the Dunkin’ Donuts nearly a mile away. They then called police.
Firefighters and police officers responded to the doughnut shop and the victim was taken by ambulance to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with a gunshot wound to his upper torso. He was reported in stable condition last night.
At the shooting scene, officers and detectives blocked off an area about 50 yards long and including four rows of parking spaces near JCPenney and the food court. They were examining the area around a parked gray Infiniti.
Mall officials declined to comment, and refered all inquiries back to police.
Crime scene technicians took photographs and collected evidence. There were about 11 yellow evidence markers in and around the vehicle of interest.
Among the evidence gathered was one black tennis shoe, a black and white speckled composition book, a crumpled up plastic bag, and what was believed to be one shell casing sitting on the pavement next to the Infiniti’s driver’s side door.
The car also had several pages of paper, regular 8.5 by 11 sheets, stuck under the windshield. A few other pieces of paper were also strewn about and gathered by police.
