Three shot at Odenton bar
When I pulled up to Maryland Shock Trauma Center early this morning to report on the shooting of a Baltimore police officer, I noticed three ambulances from Anne Arundel County in the emergency lot.
I was told that three people had been shot in Odenton. Turns out one man was shot outside a bar and two patrons were hit by stray bullets. Here are some more details from a statement from Anne Arundel County Police:
On November 27, 2010 at approximately 0148 hours officers of the Western District Platoon Four responded to a report of a shooting that just occurred at “My Place Bar & Lounge” located at 1676 Annapolis Road, Odenton Maryland.
As officers were arriving they were advised that a black male victim, identified as Antwone James Hooper, was lying on the ground to the rear of the business. When officers responded to the rear parking lot they found a black male victim suffering from a gunshot wound to his head, back and abdomen. While officers rendered aid they were told that there were two other victims inside the establishment.
Officers responded inside and found that two others were struck by stray bullets as they were entering the business. Surveillance video of the parking lot revealed that an altercation occurred at the entrance of the establishment and a suspect brandished a revolver pointing it at several subjects. The suspect then chased Hooper around several cars and eventually shot him and the other two victims standing in the doorway. The suspect was last seen running towards the rear of the Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Responding officers received a lookout of the suspect. Officers canvassed the area and located the suspect hiding behind a fence at the KFC. A short time later a K9 unit was able to locate the clothing that the suspect had removed.
All victims were transported to Medical facilities for treatment. The victims in the doorway suffered non-life threatening injuries. Hooper was transported to Shock Trauma for his injuries. He was listed in stable condition.
Suspect – James Edward Jones, 3165 Bero Road, Halethorpe Md 21227, DOB 5/10/87, B/M 5’11” 220lbs
