Severna Park man, 21, wounded during shooting

A 21-year-old man was wounded Friday night in a shooting outside a McDonald's restaurant on Veterans Highway.

Police said Brandon Wilson of the first block of Hill Road in Severna Park took himself to North Arundel Hospital, where he was in good condition Saturday.

County police released few details about the shooting. Eastern District officers were called to the restaurant about 10 p.m. for a fight and were told about the shooting.

Authorities said Mr. Wilson had been shot once in the leg.

Thieves break into cars impounded by police

Someone broke into at least two cars parked in the county Police Department's impoundment lot behind police headquarters in Millersville and stolen stereo systems.

Police said it appears that someone cut the lock on the back gate of the lot to gain entry.

While only two police reports were available on the incidents Friday, authorities said several cars were broken into and damaged.

In one case, the break-in could have occurred between April 25 and Wednesday.

It was discovered by a Pasadena man who went to the police station to claim his 1983 Mercury, which had been impounded during a drug arrest.

Missing from the car was a Sony AM/FM-cassette stereo worth $350.

The second car vandalized was a 1991 Nissan that had been seized in a drug case.

Missing from that car is a Kenwood AM/FM cassette stereo and amplifier that was in the trunk. The items are worth $700.

Parked car lurches into bank front

An elderly woman escaped injury Thursday afternoon when her car lurched forward and crashed into the front entrance of a Severna Park bank, county police said.

Few details of the accident were available on Friday, including the woman's name. The incident occurred at a Maryland National Bank at Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard and McKinsey Road.

Witnesses told police that the woman, driving a 1987 Buick, was pulling into a parking space about 1:10 p.m. when the car jumped a curb, traveled 10 feet and crashed into the first set of glass doors, near an automated teller machine.

The woman told police that she does not know how the accident happened because she put the car in park.

But witnesses said the car lurched forward from a complete stop and that its wheels were spinning beforehand.

Although the bank was packed with customers, no one inside was injured. The woman's car was not damaged.
