EDGEWOOD, Md. — The Harford County Sheriff's Office is investigating a Sunday evening shooting that led to a car crash.

On Sunday just after 6 p.m. deputies in Edgewood received two separate calls at different locations.

One was for a shooting at F Court in the area of Harford Square Drive.

The other, for a two car collision at the intersection of Hanson Road and Woodbridge Center Way.

Turns out three men involved in the crash had allegedly somehow been involved in the shooting, and were trying to flee the scene when they ran a red light and struck another car.

One person inside the car, 29-year-old Garfield Smith III of Middle River, was suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower body.

The other two men with him were treated and released.

Back at the scene of the shooting, investigators found another car and several residences damaged from apparent gunfire.

No one has been charged in the case thus far.

Anyone with information should call Detective Berg at 443-409-3302.
