February 07, 1997

A Glen Burnie man was shot in the head with a BB gun Wednesday as he sat at a traffic light at the off ramp at southbound Route 10 and Mountain Road, county police said.

Carroll Joseph Gerbig, 53, of the 900 block of Silver Maple Court told police he was waiting at the traffic signal with the driver's side window of his car rolled down about 5: 30 p.m. when he felt something hit him on the forehead.

He looked in the rear-view mirror, saw he was bleeding, drove to North Arundel Hospital and called police.

Doctors took X-rays and found Gerbig had a BB pellet lodged under his skin, police said.

Gerbig told police he did not see anyone fire a gun.
