One man is dead, another injured, following a disturbance that led to a shooting outside a bar in Windsor Mill.

Officers responded to the parking lot of Golden Dragon Bar and Grill in the 8100 block of Liberty Road around 1:45 a.m. after 9-1-1 received a call for a shooting from the complainant, identifying himself as an off-duty officer. Two men suffering from gunshot wounds were located and transported to area hospitals.

As the bar was closing and patrons were leaving, a disturbance on the parking lot drew the attention of another patron who has since been determined to be a security forces member of the Maryland Air National Guard with a gun permit. The airman saw the suspect, a 36-year-old man, with a gun. The airman drew his gun and issued commands to the suspect to drop the weapon. There was an exchange of gunfire that followed.

The suspect was struck by gunfire during the exchange and suffered a fatal wound. He was pronounced deceased at the hospital. The airman was not injured during the exchange.

A second adult man in the area at the time of the exchange was also struck by gunfire, suffering a non-fatal gunshot wound to the upper body. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Homicide Unit responded to the scene and are continuing the investigation into this shooting. A gun was recovered at the scene of the shooting.

The decedent is identified as Jerome Dewitt Garrison (36) with a last-known-address in the Irvington area.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit are investigating after a man walked into an area hospital with a gunshot wound.

The victim, a 26-year-old man, was taken to a hospital by a friend after being shot at and struck in the 8100 block of Liberty Road around 9 p.m. He is being treated for a non-life-threatening wound and is expected to survive his injury. The suspect fled the area on foot and remains outstanding.

Anyone who may have seen or heard anything, or has any information on this shooting or suspect, is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.
