Man, 22, shot in hand in Pioneer City

A 22-year-old man was shot in the hand by a man police believe was looking for drugs in Pioneer City early yesterday morning.

According to the police report, Dewayne Leonard Perin of the 2100 block of Notley Court in Crofton was standing at Indian Drive and Candlewick Court at 3:30 a.m. when a man walked up to him and asked if he "had anything."

Mr. Perin told the man he did not and the man took out a handgun and pointed it at Mr. Perin. Mr. Perin grabbed the barrel of the gun and it went off, hitting him in the hand, police said. The gunman ran.

Mr. Perin was taken to North Arundel Hospital, where he was treated and released.
