Original release:

Baltimore County Police are investigating a shooting this morning at the Carroll Park Apartments leasing office in the 200 block of Carroll Island Road near Bowleys Quarters.

A woman,47, suffered critical injuries and a man, 39, suffered non-life threatening injuries from gunshot wounds when a male suspect entered the leasing office of Carroll Park Apartments and opened fire with a long gun. Both victims are employees of the Carroll Park Apartments.

The suspect subsequently shot at the man, who had been ascending a staircase from the lower level of the building.  The suspect exited the building and returned to a van he had driven there. He placed the long gun on the hood of the van and remained there until he was approached by detectives, who were in the area on an unrelated investigation.  The suspect was taken into custody and the weapon recovered without any attempt from him to fight or flee. 

The 64-year-old suspect is held on pending charges.

The woman was flown by Medevac to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. The man who was shot was treated and released at the scene by Baltimore County Fire Department EMS personnel.

Original release (February 25):

Homicide detectives are investigating the death of an adult male found this morning behind the 3800 block of Bayville Road, Precinct 11/Essex.

Police responded to the scene -- several hundred yards from Seneca Elementary but not on school grounds --  at 6:44 a.m. after a person walking through the community saw the victim and called 911.

The man, who suffered upper body trauma, has not yet been identified. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

Baltimore County’s volunteer firefighters will receive $7 million in county aid during the next year. This includes grants to specific fire companies and subsidies for preventive maintenance, fuel and utilities.

The financial support also includes $1.7 million worth of incentives for 20 volunteer companies that provide medical service during hours of peak demand.

Check Distribution at Bowleys Quarters VFC

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz presented a portion of this money at the September 20 annual meeting of the Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association (BCVFA). This year’s meeting was hosted by the Bowleys Quarters Volunteer Fire Company.

Baltimore County has a joint fire service that includes 25 career stations and 33 volunteer fire, rescue and EMS companies, as well as two volunteer-run canteen companies that supply food and drink to responders during strenuous incidents. The volunteer companies are independent corporations that raise most of the money needed for their operations through carnivals, bingo, fundraising drives and other activities.

In addition, each year Baltimore County provides millions of dollars in support to the volunteers.

Over the course of the year, the County expects to pay out $1.7 million to the 20 companies that provide medic service. This “attended status” program rewards companies that staff medic units during hours of high demand.
