GLEN BURNIE, Md. — A man has died after he and two other people were shot at a pool party in Glen Burnie late Friday night.

At about 11:15 p.m., patrol officers arrived to the 500 block of Everett Road for reports of shots being fired. Upon arrival, officers found one shooting victim. The victim, who has been identified as 29-year-old James Antonio Diggs IV, of Gwynn Oak, was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Hospital, where he later died of his injuries.
