PASADENA, Md. — A woman was killed and a teenager was injured Monday afternoon in a shooting in Anne Arundel County.

Police said the shooting happened on Liberty Circle in Pasadena.

Police said the woman, identified as 21-year-old Aiyana Walker, died and, officers say, a 16-year-old male was shot in the torso.

Police said the 16-year-old was located at a hospital with a gunshot wound. He is stable, according to officers.

"There was a dispute between the shooter and the victims of the shooting," police said in a press conference. "The shooter then fled the scene."

Police believe two people were involved in the shooting - one took off on foot and the other left in a car.

Family told WMAR-2 that Walker was struck by a stray bullet. They said Walker was an unintended victim who heard shots fired, started running and was struck by a bullet and killed.

Police said a large group of people was gathered on Whitaker Road near Huff Court when a argument among some of the parties began.

The dispute escalated to a shooting and someone opened fire in a group of people.

Police said several members of the community are eyewitnesses to the shooting and have information regarding the incident and the possible identity of the shooter(s).

Those members of the community and anyone with information are urged to come forward and call the Anne Arundel County Police Tipline 410-222-4700 or the Homicide Unit 410-222-4731.
