— A gun­man re­mained on the loose Thurs­day night af­ter re­port­edly shoot­ing a woman mul­ti­ple times in the ab­domen out­side a res­i­dence near North East, ac­cord­ing to emer­gency ra­dio dis­patches and po­lice.

The shoot­ing oc­curred shortly be­fore 5 p.m. near the front en­trance of a house

NORTH EAST

in the 100 block of In­ver­ness Drive in the Lake­side Mo­bile Home Park neigh­bor­hood, a short dis­tance north­west of North East.

A Mary­land State Po­lice he­li­copter flew the wounded 30-year-old woman to Univer­sity of Mary­land’s Shock Trauma Unit in Baltimore, af­ter an am­bu­lance took her from the shoot­ing scene to a grassy area near the North East Sta­tion shop­ping cen­ter, the land­ing zone.

The sus­pect re­port­edly sped away in a sil­ver Cadil­lac af­ter open­ing fire on the woman and, as of early Thurs­day night, law en­force­ment of­fi­cers were try­ing to lo­cate the car and the sus­pect.

Work­ing be­hind yel­low crime scene tape at the shoot­ing scene, MSP troop­ers and North East Po­lice Depart­ment of­fi­cers found at least one spent shell cas­ing on the ground near the house while search­ing for ev­i­dence.

Shortly be­fore 7 p.m. Thurs­day, a spokesman at MSP’s North East bar­rack said the agency would re­lease of­fi­cial in­for­ma­tion about the shoot­ing later Thurs­day night.
