Last night, we reported about a shooting on Route 170. The Anne Arundel COunty Police have released the following statement:

On Friday, August 6, 2010 at approximately 10:20 P.M, officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Western District responded to the intersection of Telegraph Road and Maryland Route 100 for a reported shooting and vehicle crash. Upon arrival, officers learned Calvin Chi Man Yeung, a 40-year-old male from Severn, Maryland, had been shot in the upper torso while sitting at the traffic signal. After being shot, Yeung’s vehicle traveled through the intersection, crossed over the southbound lanes of Telegraph Road and struck the support wall of the Route 100 overpass.

Detectives from the Major Crimes Section responded to the scene to assume responsibility for the investigation. Yeung was transported by Anne Arundel County Fire Department personnel to the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, where he died of his injuries. It is unknown at this time, however, if Yeung’s death was the result of the shooting or the ensuing crash. An autopsy will be performed at a later date to determine the exact cause of death.

The shooting suspect is described as a white male early 20’s, 5’09” to 5’10” tall, weighing 170-175lbs and having short light brown hair. The suspect was last seen wearing a white short sleeve T-shirt and jean shorts. The suspect is believed to have fled the scene in a dark red or burgundy 4 door vehicle.

The motive of this incident, as well as any connection the victim had to the shooting suspect, remains under investigation. No further information is being released at this time. Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is urged to contact Detective Bryan Isaac with the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 410-222-3413 or 410-222-8610.
