ELKRIDGE, Md. — Maryland State Police are actively investigating a shooting that happened in Elkridge on Sunday.

Troopers from the Waterloo Barrack were called to a single vehicle crash on northbound I-95 in the area of Maryland Route 100.

Less than 24 hours after the crash, highway crews rushed to repair the damaged guard rails along Interstate 95 near Route 100 in Howard County where a van left the pavement and came to rest in the median.

“Once troopers arrived at the scene, the approached the vehicle and observed the driver of this cargo van suffered from an apparent gun shot wound,” said Elena Russo of the Maryland State Police.

At this point, police will only say the man is from Maryland, not simply passing through, but with as many as 200,000 motorists per day traveling that highway, they are hoping someone saw something, anything, which could help them begin to unravel the mystery surrounding the events leading up to the crash.

“At this point, they do not know how this man sustained a gun shot wound,” said Russo. “Was it road rage? Was it attempted murder? Those questions have yet to be answered.”

If you were driving around 3:40 in the afternoon on I-95 on Sunday and saw anything, you are asked to call police at 410-929-0802.
