Victims of the recent flooding may receive assistance through the non-profit organization, Maryland Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD).

​The Baltimore County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management has been working with storm victims in Catonsville and other flood-stricken areas on recovery needs.

VOAD services are free of charge; the organization does not solicit donations. Renters will be required to submit a waiver signed by a landlord.

Available services include flood cleanup, demolition, pressure washing, sanitation/mold remediation, debris removal and chainsaw operations.

​VOAD's Flood Cleanup Hotline is 410-449-5415.

Emergency Management officials advise storm victims seeking advice on storm recovery to use government agencies or reputable organizations such as the Red Cross or VOAD. "Scammers" seeking to take advantage of storm victims are a common problem following disasters.

 

 



Beware of scammers. Works for free and does not solicit donations. If you are a renter, you will need your landlord to sign a waiver.

Police Seek Information on Suspects in Target Shooting

Baltimore County Police are now asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspects involved in a shooting at Target in Owings Mills two weeks ago.

Shoppers were left startled and afraid when a gunshot rang out in the Target cafe at 11200 Reisterstown Road, 21117 around 5:41 p.m. on Monday, March 12. Two of the subjects involved in the incident fled the store toward Dolfield Boulevard on foot while the rest were seen fleeing in a vehicle southbound on Reisterstown Road following the shooting.

Detectives continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting, but surveillance video shows one suspect shooting toward two of the other subjects involved in the incident when they became engaged in a physical altercation. It is still unclear which of the two was the intended target. Police believe that the shooter is one of the subjects seen fleeing the scene on foot toward Dolfield Boulevard after attempting to fire a second round, which jammed in the gun.

Police are now asking for the public's help in identifying the individuals pictured in these still frames from the Target security surveillance video. Anyone who recognizes any of these individuals is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.

Detectives from the Franklin - Precinct 3 Investigative Services Unit continue to work this case.
