Annapolis Police Release Statement on Recent Shooting of Teenaged Girl

On August 1, 2023, at 9:53 pm, the Annapolis Police responded to the 1800 block of Bowman Drive for a report of a juvenile female shooting victim. Officers located the 16-year-old victim in a residence, suffering from a gunshot wound to her arm. Officers rendered aid before medics arrived and transported her to an area hospital.

NOTE: The event below, Arts Alive 25, was held on September 8, 2023.

The victim reported that she was outside by the community playground when an unknown male suspect walking nearby began shooting, striking the victim in the arm. The suspect fled in an unknown direction. The victim fled to a nearby home.

The victim’s injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

Many of us in Annapolis want peace in our streets and safe places for our kids to play and grow. We are all sick of these shootings, and we are aggressively following up all leads to hold this individual accountable. Detectives are working around the clock to bring them to justice.”
