Two men suffered gunshot wounds during a shooting inside a Dundalk residence early this morning.

Police responded for a man with a gunshot wound in the 1900 block of Frames Road just after midnight and discovered a second man, also suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Both men were transported to local hospitals for treatment and are expected to survive their injuries.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit are continuing to investigate the circumstance surrounding the shooting but believe this was a targeted incident and there is no further danger to the community.

The First Annual Baltimore County Police Department Flag Football Camp is scheduled for July 23 to 27. Precinct 12/Dundalk will host the camp from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Dundalk High School located at 1901 Delvale Avenue in Dundalk, 21222.

The week-long camp focuses on underprivileged and at-risk youth from ages 8 to 14. It is free to participants nominated by local schools, recreation councils and other programs. There will be "skills and drills" for the participants, as well as scrimmage games.

Officer McElfish, a 24-year veteran of the department, and Officer Minton, a 15-year veteran of the department, will inaugurate this yearly event.

The idea behind the camp is to bridge the gap between police officers and the young people in the area through sport. Seeing officers as people, not just uniforms, changes the perception many people have, especially our youth.
