Woman employee shot at store

February 01, 1996

County police say a 41-year-old Pasadena man barged into the 7-Eleven where his wife works Tuesday night and fired one blast from a shotgun at her.

He was wrestled to the ground by his son, police said yesterday.

The man, identified as Wesley Howard Parks Jr., 41, of the 7800 block of Appletree Road, was taken to North Arundel Hospital after the shooting, complaining of chest pains. He was listed in stable condition yesterday. Police said they will charge him with assault with intent to murder after his release.

His wife, Michele Parks, 40, who police said was shot in the chest, was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center where she was reported in serious but stable condition yesterday.

Police said a man entered the store at Fort Smallwood and Hog Neck roads about 8 p.m., fired one shot at Mrs. Parks and was wrestled to the ground.

During the struggle, another shotgun blast shattered a store window, police said. Police did not know of a motive for the shooting.
