Two other people were arrested last night in the 1100 block of Madison St during the investigation into the shooting.

On September 20, 2017, at approximately 10:45 p.m., members of the Anne Arundel County Police Department responded to an address in the 700 block of Central Avenue in Edgewater to look for a person of interest in a shooting that happened earlier in the evening in Annapolis City. The person of interest barricaded himself in the home and officers set up a perimeter to contain the person. Central Avenue (Route 214) was completely closed to all traffic. Negotiators were called to the scene and the barricade ended after 7 hours (5:45am) scene and the suspect is in police custody. There is no word yet on how the barricade ended, nor the name of the suspect.
