Detectives are investigating a Middle River shooting that seriously injured a 27-year-old man.
The incident occurred at about 10:30 a.m. today in an apartment in the 3800 block of Dunsmuir Circle, 21220, in Precinct 11/Essex.
An investigation by the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit shows that two men knocked on the door of apartment and announced a robbery as soon as the victims --the man and a 20-year-old female companion -- answered the door. One of the suspects displayed a handgun, and both suspects entered the apartment. The male victim was shot during a brief struggle. He is in surgery at an area hospital.
The suspects fled on foot with an unknown amount cash.
Police are trying to determine whether this was a targeted crime. Anyone with information about this case should contact BCoPD at 410-307-2020.
