Police are investigating an early morning shooting on Marquette Road in the White Marsh Precinct believed to be an attempted robbery.

Baltimore County Police were first called to the 6000 block of Marquette Road for a crash after a vehicle struck a tree around 4:30 a.m. Police responding to the scene found evidence of a crash but no vehicle.

A short time later Baltimore City Police were called to a residence for a man in a vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower body. He was transported to an area hospital where he is being treated for a non-life-threatening injury.

Police were able to piece together information and determined that the victim, an adult man, was the driver of a sedan service who picked up a fare in Baltimore City and transported two men, the suspects, to the 6000 block of Marquette Road around 4:30 a.m. Once there, the suspects produced a handgun and attempted to rob the victim. A struggle ensued and the victim was shot once in a lower extremity. The two suspects fled the scene on foot while the victim got back into his vehicle and attempted to drive away but struck a tree first, then drove to a home in Baltimore City where a known resident called 911.

Anyone who may have information about this crime or these suspects is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020. The BCoPD Violent Crimes Unit is continuing to investigate this incident.
