Police are investigating an early morning shooting on Marquette Road in the White Marsh Precinct believed to be an attempted robbery.

Baltimore County Police were first called to the 6000 block of Marquette Road for a crash after a vehicle struck a tree around 4:30 a.m. Police responding to the scene found evidence of a crash but no vehicle.

A short time later Baltimore City Police were called to a residence for a man in a vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower body. He was transported to an area hospital where he is being treated for a non-life-threatening injury.

Police were able to piece together information and determined that the victim, an adult man, was the driver of a sedan service who picked up a fare in Baltimore City and transported two men, the suspects, to the 6000 block of Marquette Road around 4:30 a.m. Once there, the suspects produced a handgun and attempted to rob the victim. A struggle ensued and the victim was shot once in a lower extremity. The two suspects fled the scene on foot while the victim got back into his vehicle and attempted to drive away but struck a tree first, then drove to a home in Baltimore City where a known resident called 911.

Anyone who may have information about this crime or these suspects is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020. The BCoPD Violent Crimes Unit is continuing to investigate this incident.

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's help in identifying this suspect who committed an armed robbery October 22 at Edible Arrangements in the Towson Precinct.

Investigators have exhausted efforts to identify this suspect, who walked into the store at 6352 York Road around 3:37 p.m. brandishing a handgun and demanding cash from the register. The suspect fled on foot across the parking lot toward York Road and, although an extensive search for the suspect was conducted, he was able to avoid capture.

Police are now asking for the public's help in identifying this robber. If you recognize this suspect or have any information pertaining to this crime, contact Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

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.
