Two unidentified suspects are believed to have attempted to burglarize the T-Mobile store in the Milford Mill Shopping Center in the 8000 block of Liberty Road this morning by driving a van into the storefront.

A passerby called 9-1-1 after seeing a Chevrolet conversion van being driven into the front of the store around 5:51 a.m. Two suspects exited the van but were still unable to gain entry to the store because of a security gate barring the window and entrance areas. They were seen fleeing towards the nearby Exxon gas station, leaving the van, which was later determined to be reported stolen, still in the storefront.

Police and fire units responded and secured the scene. BCoFD investigators determined that there is no structural damage that would cause the shopping center to be unsafe, but T-mobile will be closed since the van penetrated the picture window.

This incident will continue to be investigated by officers of the Pikesville precinct.

Shortly after 10 p.m. last night, police were called to the area of Langrehr and Liberty roads in Precinct 4/Pikesville for a shooting.

The victim, a 22-year-old man, said he was walking down the street when he was shot by a suspect in a dark-colored vehicle. The victim believes he was accidentally shot when the suspect missed the intended target, who was in a vehicle.

The victim was taken to an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the lower body and is expected to survive his injuries.

The Baltimore County Violent Crimes Unit continues to investigate this shooting.

Baltimore County Police have charged a suspect in a targeted home-invasion robbery of an elderly couple in Pikesville yesterday morning.

Timothy McCargo (45) of the unit block of Linden Avenue, 21217 was arrested around 6:40 p.m. last night after a swift and thorough investigation indicated he was the man who robbed a husband (70) and wife (68) inside their home in the 3300 block of Timberfield Lane, 21209.

Police were called to the home around 4:35 a.m. when the couple escaped their bindings after McCargo left in their Chevrolet Equinox with a number of their possessions, including cash, jewelry, credit cards, a phone, firearms, ammunition and a 20-pack of toilet paper.

McCargo is believed to have entered the couple's home through a window around 3:45 a.m. and remain undetected until the couple's dog woke the husband, who was then confronted by a gun wielding McCargo.
