Annapolis police are investigating the shooting of an Ohio man outside the Kneseth Israel Synagogue late Sunday.

Police found Mark Hounshell, 35, in the parking lot about 11 p.m. with gunshot wounds to his legs and right arm, police said. Residents had called police after hearing gunshots near the synagogue, at 1125 Spa Road, authorities said.

Hounshell was flown to the Shock Trauma Center at Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly, where he was listed yesterday in fair condition. The man, who lives in northeast Cleveland in an area called Willowick, had been in Annapolis for a family reunion.

Hounshell described his attacker to a detective who visited the hospital early yesterday, but there are no reported witnesses, police said.
