Baltimore County Police are investigating a shooting in the 3700 block of Brownbrook Court in Randallstown last night.

Police were initially called to the 3700 block of Brownbrook Court around 11:30 p.m. for a call of shots fired, but no suspect or victim was located at that time. Soon after, police were called to the 8700 block of Church Lane when the victim of the shooting on Brownbrook Court arrived at a friend’s home suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the upper and lower body. The victim, a 34-year-old man, was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening wounds and remains in critical condition.

Detectives in the BCoPD Violent Crimes Unit are continuing to investigate this incident to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting. Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to contact police by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.

In her continued efforts to find a person responsible for Joann “Jody” Elizabeth LeCornu’s murder, Jennifer LeCornu Carrieri, Jody’s twin sister, has coordinated the posting of a billboard at 5722 York Road, near St. Dunstans Road, 21212. The billboard will be placed on the morning of October 29, 2018.

The Baltimore County Police Department continues to seek additional information about this homicide. Just before 4:00 a.m. on March 2, 1996, police were called to the 6300-block of York Road, 21212, for a shooting. Officers found Jody LeCornu, 23, inside her car suffering from a gunshot wound. The subsequent investigation determined that she was shot in the back while seated inside her car on the lot of the Drumcastle Shopping Center in the 6300-block of York Road, 21212. After being shot, LeCornu drove her car onto York Road and then onto the lot of the York Road Plaza. Witnesses gave information about a male suspect. The suspect followed LeCornu’s car into the lot of the Plaza and then removed an unknown item from inside Jody’s car. The man then drove away southbound on York Road in a white BMW. He was described as a black male with a stocky build and wearing a drab or green-colored army style coat.
