Baltimore County Police are investigating a shooting in Lansdowne last night that left two people injured.

Just after 7:30 p.m. on September 1, police responded to the Lansdowne Shopping Center in the 3900 block of Hollins Ferry Road, 21227 for a call of a shooting. Responding officers located a victim, an adult female, who was shot in the upper body. She was transported to a local hospital and is in serious condition.

Shortly afterward, officers were notified of a second victim, a teenage male, who walked into a local hospital suffering a gunshot wound to the upper body. He has since been treated and released from the hospital.

UPDATE (August 26, 2020 10 a.m.):

Police have charged three suspects in a shooting on Rockdale Terrace early Saturday morning.

Officers were responding to a call for shots fired in the area of Rockdale Terrace and Florida Road, 21208 shortly after 3 a.m. where they observed a vehicle matching that of one taken in a carjacking just over an hour earlier. Officers stopped the vehicle and confirmed that it had been taken from a man in the 6600 block of Dogwood Road, 21244, around 1:50 a.m. The victim in that case, an adult man, was assaulted during the carjacking and ultimately transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening wounds. The suspects were taken into custody for the carjacking at that time.

A short time later, at approximately 3:33 a.m., police were dispatched for a shooting victim near the area where the call for shots fired had been dispatched. Officers located a man suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit responded to assume the investigation into the shooting. They determined that the same suspects responsible for the carjacking were also responsible for shooting the man during an armed robbery as he was walking home from 7-Eleven along Rockdale Terrace, and that they were trying to flee the scene of the shooting when they were stopped by officers who recognized the vehicle from the earlier carjacking.

The three suspects all remain held on no bail status following bail review hearings, charged with the following:

  • Attempted first degree murder
  • First degree assault
  • Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony/violent crime
  • Robbery
  • Armed robbery

The suspects are identified as follows:

  • Brandon Antonio Muldrow (30) of the 2900 block of Rockroads Avenue, 21215
  • Eric Raymon Harrington (28) of the 1900 block of Merritt Boulevard, 21222
  • Adam Aria Arasteh (19) of the 15700 block of Ensor Mill Road, 21152
