Record Observer - - News -

GRASONVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to a shooting Satur­day, Nov. 19, at 2:30 a.m. that oc­curred in a church park­ing lot in the vicin­ity of the Grasonville Com­mu­nity Cen­ter.

The re­port came from the Queen Anne’s Emer­gency Cen­ter in Queen­stown, which con­tacted the Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­port­ing a pa­tient had ar­rived at the emer­gency room with a gun­shot wound to his arm.

The vic­tim, a 22-yearold Church Hill man, told deputies he was sit­ting in a car in the park­ing lot of the church across from the Grasonville Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, where a pri­vate birth­day party was end­ing, po­lice said.

Ap­par­ently there was a large group of peo­ple ar­gu­ing who were block­ing the exit, said Lt. Dale Patrick, spokesman for the sher­iff’s of­fice. The vic­tim yelled to the group for them to move out of the way; then sev­eral shots were fired, he said.

Af­ter they left the park­ing lot, the vic­tim told the driver he’d been hit, and she drove him di­rectly to the emer­gency cen­ter, Patrick said.

The vic­tim was treated and re­leased at the Queen Anne’s Emer­gency Cen­ter. His name is be­ing with­held as the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still ac­tive.

De­tec­tives are seek­ing wit­nesses to the in­ci­dent. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to contact De­tec­tive Chase Ar­m­ing­ton at 410-758-0770 or by email at carm­ing­ton@qac.org.
