A thorough investigation led Baltimore County Police to quickly identify the suspect in a shooting in the 500 block of Main Street in Dundalk Sunday evening.

Although police have received varying accounts of the events, they believe the suspect knocked on the victim's rear door around 7 p.m. and entered the home. The suspect and victim engaged in a verbal altercation that escalated when the suspect pulled out a gun and struck the victim in the head, causing the firearm to discharge into a wall of the home. The victim retrieved his own firearm, firing multiple rounds at the suspect, who fled on foot through the rear door.

The victim, a 27-year-old man, was transported to an area hospital with a minor injury to his head and released.

A short time later police were notified of a shooting victim that responded to a hospital in Baltimore City with multiple gunshot wounds. This person was ultimately identified as the suspect in the Main Street shooting by the primary responding officer and detectives from the Dundalk Precinct Investigative Services Team. An arrest warrant was obtained, pending the suspect's release from medical care. The identity of this suspect will be released following formal charging.

Baltimore County Police are investigating a shooting on Vanderwood Road last night that resulted in the death of a 46-year-old man.

Police and medics were sent to the 900 block of Vanderwood Road in Catonsville after receiving 9-1-1 calls for an unconscious man lying in the street around 8 p.m. The man, identified as Idrissa Derme (46) of the 1900 block of Mosher Street, 21217, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The preliminary investigation indicates that Mr. Derme suffered at least one gunshot wound while he was delivering a food order for a local carry-out restaurant to an address on Vanderwood Road. Detectives believe that robbery was the motive for the shooting.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen anything unusual or heard gunshots fired to contact police by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.

Baltimore County Police are asking for help identifying a man who robbed the 7-Eleven store in the 7600 block of Belair Road on September 23.

The suspect entered the store around 7:53 p.m. that Sunday and spoke with the clerk briefly, but then left the store. He re-entered a few minutes later and approached the counter to make a purchase but then demanded money from the cash register instead, implying he had a weapon. He fled toward Fowler Avenue.

Anyone who can identify this man is asked to contact the Baltimore County Police Department Robbery Unit by calling 410-307-2020.
