A civil process server was shot at while trying to deliver paperwork to a Carroll County man, according to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

Christian Shenk, 41, is charged with attempted second-degree murder, use of a firearm/crime of violence, reckless endangerment and first-degree assault after firing shots at the victim’s car, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The incident happened around 10:50 p.m. Tuesday in the 4300 block of Salem Bottom Road in Westminster.

The victim told deputies that Shenk told him to leave the property after he identified himself as a process server. He watched as Shenk left his garage with what appeared to be a rifle, and as he got into his car to leave, he heard several gun shots.

There were several holes left in the victim’s car from the shots, deputies said.

Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to contact Det. Harbaugh at 410-386-5900, or the Anonymous TIPS Hotline at 1-888-399-TIPP.
