Keep on giving
Elkton Moose Lodge celebrates with service
— Even though the Elkton Moose Lodge needs a new roof on its clubhouse, the members are honoring their tradition of community service by making presentations to two organizations.
On Saturday, David Callis, governor of Lodge 851,
handed a $500 cash donation to Singerly Fire Company. Ken Streets, assistant fire chief, accepted the donation on behalf of the company.
“It will go into our general fund,” Streets said, shaking Callis’ hand. Streets said it would be used for operating costs of the volunteer organization.
Callis then told Cpl.Michael Kalinsky from the Cecil County Sheriff’s Office
Officers dispatched there found the victims gone, but witnesses reported seeing a man and a woman leaving the area had suffered gunshot wounds.
According to Zurolo, those victims were injured when the man picked up a handgun inside the vehicle.
“The male victim was getting into a vehicle at West End Gardens with the female,” according to the release. “While the male began to pick up a handgun from the seat of the vehicle, the gun fired and the round went through the male victim’s hand and into the female victim’s stomach.”
A woman who was in the motel office at the time said she heard the shots fired and saw the pair leaving the complex on Route 40 near Landing Lane.
“The girl in the front seat was crying,” Kahlie McClellan told the Whig at the scene Thursday.
She also saw a white car arrive with three people inside. McClellan overheard a conversation in which one person in that car, upon hearing of the shooting, said, “I’m sure whoever got shot, it was for a reason.”
Meanwhile, police have narrowed down their search in Hollingsworth Manor to the 100 block of Huntsman Drive. Shell casings were recovered in that area. Zurolo said those casings do not match the gun at the West End incident.
“Investigators continued to canvas the area for witnesses and suspects but were continually met with hostility and individuals refusing to speak with the police,” he reported.
Anyone with information should contact Cpl. Ron Odom at 410-3984200 ext. 67.
Adam Storey set up a hammock and stayed in the pavilion at Moose Lodge 851 in Cherry Hill all night in order to baste the pork he had roasting on the grill for Saturday’s Spring Fling.
Alleged suspects wait in the back of an Elkton Police patrol car Thursday afternoon at West End Gardens. Elkton police are having trouble investigating shootings at West End and Hollingsworth Manor because as many as 60 witnesses will not cooperate.
