Baltimore County Police are investigating a shooting in Woodlawn late Wednesday night that left a woman injured.

At 11:33 p.m. police responded to a parking lot in the 6000 block of Townbrook Drive, 21207 for a report of a shooting. The victim told police that she was in her parked vehicle on the lot of her apartment complex when she was approached by multiple unknown suspects who shot at her when she attempted to flee.

The victim, an 18-year-old woman, had just ended a phone call when she saw the suspects approaching her. They told her to turn off her car and give them the keys. Instead, the victim put the car in reverse and attempted to flee the scene. At that time, one of the suspects fired a handgun, causing at least one round to penetrate the driver side door and wound the victim in her left hip. The suspects then fled the scene.

The victim remains hospitalized but is expected to live.

This incident continues to be investigated by the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
