Md. seeks drive-by shooting suspects
Maryland State Police are looking for suspects in a drive-by shooting along Route 50 near Annapolis that left one man injured, officials said Saturday.
Police said two men had been at a club in Washington and were headed west on Route 50 early Saturday when a black Range Rover rushed behind them about 4:30 a.m. The men say someone fired shots from the passenger side of the Range Rover.
At least a dozen shots struck the car. One man suffered two graze wounds to his shoulder, which are believed to have been caused by bullet fragments or flying glass. The rear driver's side window of their vehicle was shattered. The suspects' vehicle had temporary or cardboard license plates.
After the incident, the two men continued driving but had to stop after a tire, which might have been struck by a bullet, shredded off the rim.
About 7:15 a.m., a Maryland state trooper found the pair on the shoulder of westbound Route 50 at the Anne Arundel and Prince George’s county line, where a tow truck had just left.
The men had not called police to report the incident.
