A man suffered injuries after crashing a stolen vehicle early this morning on Scotts Level Road in Pikesville.

Officers were initially dispatched to the 100 block of Purvis Place at 2:14 a.m. for a call of a Jeep Cherokee being stolen. An officer responding to the area located the stolen Jeep and attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Scotts Level Road. The driver of the Jeep failed to stop and lost control of the vehicle just before Old Court Road and struck a fence and a parked car before overturning and ejecting the driver.

The driver, 18, was transported to an area hospital where he remains in critical condition.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team responded to the scene and is conducting the crash reconstruction.

Just after midnight on May 12, 2019, Baltimore County Police responded to the unit-block of Malus Court, 21207 for a shooting.

The victim, a 31 year-old male, told police that he was approached by an unknown suspect. The suspect attempted to rob and steal the victim's car. During the attempt, the suspect shot the victim and fled. The victim suffered a non-life threatening injury to his lower body. The man was transported to a local hospital and has since been released after receiving medical treatment. 

If anyone has information about this crime, please call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
