A man was shot and killed during an argument over a pen in a Severna Park doughnut shop early today, Anne Arundel County Police said.

Police have not released the name of the victim, who was in his 20s, pending notification of his family, according to Officer Terry Crowe.

Investigators said two men were inside the Dunkin Donuts store in the 600 block of Ritchie Highway around 3:15 a.m. when the victim asked the other man if he could borrow a pen, Officer Crowe said. After the man gave the victim the pen, the victim asked if he could buy it. The man refused.

An argument followed and the assailant took a semiautomatic handgun from his belt and shot the victim 10 times, Officer Crowe said.

The assailant was described as a white male in his early 20s, 5-feet, 11-inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds with short brown hair. He was wearing jeans and a turquoiseknit shirt and was last seen driving a late-model gray Dodge Shadow.

There were two other customers and two employees in the store at the time of the shooting. None was hurt.
