The Baltimore County Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred in the Woodlawn area.

On April 18, at approximately 10:47 p.m., police were notified by a local hospital of a victim who had just walked into the location suffering from a gunshot wound. The 54-year-old male victim told police that he was shot in the area of Belmont Avenue and Security Boulevard, 21207. The victim stated that he was parked on the side of the road using his cell phone when he was approached by two suspects. The suspects indicated to him that he was being robbed and began assaulting the victim. The victim fled the scene when at least one gunshot entered the rear window of his car striking him in the back. The victim was able to drive to a local hospital where police were called.

The suspects are described as black males, 20-30 years old, 6' tall, 180-200 pounds, and wearing dark clothing. The older of the two had a thin beard. The suspects left the scene in an unknown direction.

The victim is in stable condition and is expected to recover from his injury.

The Baltimore County Police Department is asking anyone who may have information about this crime to call 410-307-2020. No additional details are available at this time.

UPDATE (March 18):

The suspect in the March 14 shooting in Randallstown that left a woman injured has died. He has been identified as 30-year-old Taavon T Gilliam.

Police have identified the victim as 29-year-old Madonna Nicole Gilliam of the 9600 block of Axehead Court in Randallstown. Her current condition is unknown.


Original release (March 14):

At 6:55 a.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire Personnel responded to a home in the 9600 block of Axehead Court in Randallstown for a report of a shooting. Upon arriving at the scene, officers discovered an adult female with at least one gunshot wound to the upper body. She was transported to Shock Trauma with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the victim and the suspect were having some sort of interaction in front of the home. During that interaction, the suspect shot the victim at least once in the upper body. The suspect then fled the scene.

Officers later approached a car that the suspect was in at a location in Baltimore City. When they went up to the car, they found that he had a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to Sinai Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

The victim and the suspect were married and lived at the location. However, the suspect had been staying at another location for the past several weeks.

The Baltimore City Police Department is conducting the investigation into the self-inflicted gunshot wound.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department Violent Crimes Unit. Further information will be released as it becomes available.

UPDATE: The suspect that was arrested in connection with the February 22 shooting at the Dukes Motel in Rosedale has been identified as 24-year-old Akeem Raghib Smith of the 8200 block of Pulaski Highway in Rosedale. He is currently being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Just before 7:30 a.m. on February 22, Baltimore County Police responded to the Dukes Motel located in the 7900 block of Pulaski Highway for a shooting call. Upon arrival, officers were unable to locate a suspect or a victim.

One of the responding officers observed a man fitting the description of the possible shooter, walking into a nearby Royal Farm store, also in the 7900 block of Pulaski Highway, 21237. Noticing the officer, the man walked out of the store and attempted to run from the police. The man was detained after a brief foot pursuit. Officers located a handgun inside the store. Officers continued their investigation and placed the man under arrest.

It was determined that the man had an argument with a woman inside a room at the Dukes Motel. The woman left the room and got into her car to leave the area. The suspect shot into the tire of the car to prevent the woman from leaving, but she continued to drive away. Witnesses claim that the suspect fired additional shots at the car, as the woman drove off of the parking lot.

The victim was later located by police, safe and unharmed. No one was harmed during the incident. Additional information will not be available until the suspect is formally charged by police.
