Police Still Investigating Route 22 Shooting

No charges have been filed in Wednesday night's shooting on Churchville Road.

Police are continuing to investigate a shooting that occurred in an apartment house outside Aberdeen Wednesday night.

No charges have been filed as of Friday, Greg Shipley, spokesman for Maryland State Police (MSP), told Patch. Police are not revealing the identities of two men who are being investigated, due to the potential of charges, he added.

An Aberdeen man who was shot remains at University of Shock Trauma Center, where he is wounded, Shipley said.

MSP's initial investigation into the incident revealed that on Wednesday, a 37-year-old Aberdeen man was attempting to break into an apartment on the 3300 block of Churchville Road where he said his ex-girlfriend was inside with another man.

Neighbors called police around 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 12 after hearing what sounded like gunshots, according to a statement from MSP.

Police said they considered the man inside the apartment, who was identified as a 38-year-old from Havre de Grace, as a suspect.

When police arrived on the scene, the Havre de Grace man was standing in the parking area of the apartment house with his hands in the air, MSP reported. Police found a gun in the backyard, according to the statement.

Police found the Aberdeen man, who suffered from multiple gunshot wounds, in his car at a gas station on West Bel Air Avenue, reported MSP. He told officers that the Havre de Grace man shot him, police said.

Shipley said the Aberdeen man remains at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment, and the investigation is ongoing.
