Baltimore County Police were dispatched to the 7400 block of Lesada Drive at approximately 11:23 p.m. when a woman called 9-1-1 after seeing masked suspects enter the vestibule of her apartment complex, then heard a gunshot.

The woman was leaving the laundry room with another man when three black male suspects wearing all dark clothing and ski masks entered the vestibule, two of whom were brandishing handguns. The woman ran back into the laundry room and hid, calling 9-1-1 after hearing a gunshot.

The man who had left the laundry room was confronted by the suspects. One suspect struck him in the side of the head, causing the gun to fire. The man, 34, fled in one direction while the suspects fled in another. The man suffered a laceration to his face but was otherwise uninjured.

Police are still investigating to determine a motive for this assault. Anyone with information on this crime or criminals is asked to contact police at the Woodlawn Precinct at 410-887-1340.
