Two shoot­ings, only min­utes apart, re­ported near Dun­dalk Av­enue

A pair of shoot­ings that hap­pened in Dun­dalk in late June could be re­lated, but BCPD has not yet been able to elim­i­nate co­in­ci­dence.

Two firearms dis­charge calls were re­ported be­tween 8 p.m. and 8:08 p.m. on June 27. The first call was made at 8 p.m. The caller re­ported gun­shots be­hind Pin­land Bowl­ing Alley on Dun­dalk Av­enue. The sec­ond call was made at 8:08 p.m., re­port­ing shots fired on Lib­erty Park­way, just a few blocks from Dun­dalk Av­enue.

Of­fi­cer Jen­nifer Peach, a pub­lic af­fairs of­fi­cer with the Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Depart­ment, said it is possible the two shoot­ings are con­nected but that not has not yet been con­firmed. Both shoot­ings are still be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by BCPD’s 12th Precinct, she said.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, three sus­pects were speak­ing to an­other per­son who was get­ting into a ve­hi­cle be­hind Pin­land Bowl­ing Alley. That per­son was then chased into an alley, where shots were fired. The of­fi­cers in­ves­ti­gat­ing at the scene re­cov­ered and undis­closed num­ber of shell cas­ings.

No in­juries were re­ported, and no re­ports of dam­aged property were taken. Peach said that it is not clear if the one per­son shot back at the three sus­pects while run­ning since bul­lets didn’t strike any­where in the alley.

At 8:08 p.m., po­lice of­fi­cers were dis­patched to an undis­closed unit block on Lib­erty Park­way, not far from Dun­dalk Av­enue. Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, two ve­hi­cles turned onto Lib­erty Park­way from Dun­dalk Av­enue when shots were fired. The win­dow of a home was struck, but no one was in­jured.

One of the two ve­hi­cles was later dis­cov­ered and, ac­cord­ing to the re­port, had dam­age con­sis­tent with two bul­let holes. Three, not 30, shell cas­ings were re­cov­ered in the area, ac­cord­ing to the re­port.

Peach said the ve­hi­cle ap­pears to be the in­tended tar­get in the sec­ond shoot­ing, but the mo­tive is still not known.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions for both shoot­ings are still on­go­ing.
