On May 1, 2011, at approximately 1:36 p.m., officers from the Northern District responded to the 200 block of Woodhill Drive in Glen Burnie for a report of a shooting

Upon arrival, officers were advised that a 37-year-old male victim had driven himself to Baltimore Washington Medical Center after apparently being shot. Officers responded to the hospital and spoke with the victim, who indicated that he met up with a male subject in the Woodhill Drive area to engage in the sale of a vehicle. At one point during the encounter, the suspect displayed a handgun and attempted to rob the victim.

A struggle subsequently occurred resulting in the victim being shot in the lower extremity. The suspect left the scene and was apprehended a short time later after a brief foot chase in the Oak Manor Drive area.
