September 27, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A shooting in Edmondson Village yesterday afternoon left a man in his early 20s dead and another man wounded. Police were questioning a possible suspect, a department spokeswoman said.

Police did not immediately release the names of the victims. Officers at the scene said they were investigating the incident, which occurred minutes before 3 p.m., as a failed robbery attempt.

The dead man was found lying on a sidewalk in the 3800 block of Gelston Drive, a block from Lyndhurst Elementary School.

Several school buses drove by the scene and the covered body as they took students home from school.

Detectives followed a trail of blood from the body through an alley to Colborne Lane, two blocks away, where the wounded man had called police from a pay phone. A police spokeswoman said the victim had been shot in the hand and was being treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
