Baltimore County Police are investigating an early morning shooting that police believe was an attempted robbery.
Police were first called to the 6000 block of Marquette Road after a vehicle struck a tree at about 4:30 a.m. When police arrived, they found evidence of a crash, but no vehicle.
However, a short time later, Baltimore City Police were called to a house because a man in a vehicle was suffering from a gunshot wound to his lower body. He was taken to an area hospital, where he is currently being treated for a non-life-threatening injury.
After doing some digging, police were able to piece together information and found out that the victim, an adult man, was the driver of a sedan service that picked up a fare in Baltimore City. The driver transported the suspects, two men, to the 6000 block of Marquette Road at around 4:30 a.m. Once there, the suspects pulled out a gun and tried to rob the victim. A struggle began and the victim was shot once in a lower extremity. While the two suspects fled the scene on foot, the victim got back in his vehicle and tried to drive away, but ended up hitting a tree. After that, he drove to a home in Baltimore City where a known resident called 911.
The Baltimore County Violent Crimes Unit is continuing to investigate this incident. Anyone who may have any information about his crime or these suspects is asked to call Baltimore County Police at (410) 307-2020.
