Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit detectives are investigating an incident on Bexhill Road near Turgot Lane that left one man injured.

Police were dispatched to Northwest Hospital around 2:55 a.m. for a patient with a possible gunshot wound. Medical staff have determined that the injury the 36-year-old victim sustained is actually a laceration or possibly a stab wound. He is expected to recover.

The victim indicated that he was walking with friends on Bexhill Road when they were approached by a vehicle. At least three suspects exited the vehicle and began a physical altercation with the group, during which shots were heard being fired. The victim fled and was later transported to the hospital for what he thought was a gunshot wound.

Anyone who may have seen or heard anything unusual in the area at that time is asked to contact Baltimore County Police by calling 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.
