Baltimore County Police are currently on the scene investigating a shooting in Middle River, 21220.

Police and EMS responded to the 1500 block of Dornton Avenue for a report of a subject shot inside a home there around 2:34 p.m. The victim suffered at least one gunshot wound and was transported to a local hospital for treatment and is expected to survive. The preliminary investigation indicates the suspect fled the scene.

Martin Boulevard Elementary School is not on any type of alert status as police believe there is no immediate threat to the community.

Detectives from the BCoPD Violent Crimes Unit are investigating.

Baltimore County Police will be keeping an eye on sex offenders that are not allowed to have contact with children this Halloween.

Out of the hundreds of registered sex offenders in Baltimore County, only about 10 percent have what is called a “no contact order” as part of their probation. This, in effect, prohibits them from handing out candy to children on Halloween. Registered sex offenders that are not under such an order are not prohibited from giving candy out to children.

Undercover officers will be watching the residences of persons with a no contact order and will be coordinating with Parole and Probation agents.

Anyone who suspects that someone who has a no contact order is giving candy to children is asked to call detectives at 410-887-5584. Any other suspicious activity can be reported to 911 or Baltimore County's non-emergency line at 410-887-2222.
