ELKTON, Md. — Police have arrested four suspects, including a mother and two brothers in connection to a Monday afternoon shooting in Elkton that left a 7-year-old and two others injured.

Elkton Police say they got the call around 3 p.m. at 122 Huntsman Drive. Arriving officers found a 25 year old man shot in the back, a 7-year old boy shot in the knee, and a 30-year-old woman with a superficial wound to the foot.

Police say the man and child were taken to a hospital, and the woman was able to be treated at the scene. All three victims are expected to survive.

Investigators believe brothers Robert and Cody Hammond and Jason Holland set up outside and began shooting up the home before fleeing.

Robert and Cody were later arrested at their house in the 100 block of Cow Lane. Their mother, Crystal Hammond was also arrested and is accused of conspiring to commit the shooting. Heroin, crystal meth, marijuana, and cash was later found inside the home. The other brother, Jason Holland remains on the loose and is wanted for attempted murder.

A fifth suspect, Nakeere Sayers was arrested near the crime scene after being seen trying to flee the area with the Hammond brothers. Police found a black backpack belonging to Sayers, that had a loaded gun and heroin inside of it.

Detectives think the shooting is tied to some sort of dispute between two "factions" in the community. Police didn't provide anymore details on what that meant.
