While Violent Crimes Detectives continued to investigate a shooting on Solar Circle last night where a man was shot in the leg, another call came out for a man shot in the leg in Woodlawn.

Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit responded to the 2600 block of Purnell Drive after a resident called 9-1-1 when the victim indicated he'd been shot. The first arriving units found the victim, an adult man, suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment and is expected to survive. Preliminary information indicates that he was shot following a verbal altercation with the suspect near the corner of Purnell Drive and Royal Oak Avenue.

The suspect fled the location prior to arrival of police. Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.
