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.

9-1-1 received a call for a shooting at 10:18 a.m. after a man entered the leasing office and fired at least one shot from a long gun at the woman. 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.

The initial investigation indicates that at least one and possibly both victims was targeted by the suspect. Witnesses told police that the suspect is a former tenant of the apartment complex who had been evicted several months ago. Detectives have learned that the suspect has been involved in an ongoing dispute with several employees in the rental office.
