Man shot outside Baltimore County shopping center
Aman was shot at lunchtime Tuesday in the parking lot of a busy Nottingham shopping center, Baltimore County police said. The victim had one gunshot wound to a lower extremity in the incident at Fullerton Plaza in the 7900 block of Belair Road, police said. He was taken to a hospital and was expected to survive. Officers arrested a suspect six minutes after the shooting on Rossville Boulevard nearby, police said. The suspect was not identified because charges had not been filed Tuesday afternoon. Officers were called to an area of the parking lot behind a McDonald’s, where the shooting happened about 12:30 p.m. Police don’t know the motive, department spokesman Cpl. John Wachter said. He said the large number of people in the area helped quickly identify the suspect. Mike Namvar, manager at IHOP, said a customer rushed inside just after the shooting and told the people near the front door to stay in the restaurant.
