August 20, 1998|By Jamal E. Watson | Jamal E. Watson,SUN STAFF

For the second time in less than a month, someone has fired shots at a mobile home in southern Howard County, and police are investigating whether the incidents are related.

Howard County police say someone fired 10 shotgun rounds at a mobile home in Savage early yesterday morning, injuring a dog.

Police arrived at the Ev Mar Trailer Park in the 9300 block of Gorman Road at 2: 30 a.m after neighbors alerted them to gunfire in the area.

Samuel Maitlend Moore, 53, his girlfriend, Linda Kay Zajaczkowski, 25, and their two children were sleeping when the shots were fired, police said. They were not hurt, but police said Moore's dog was hit by several pellets.

"Right now, we don't have any suspects but we have investigators on the case," said Sgt. Morris Carroll, police spokesman.

Police are investigating whether there is a connection between yesterday's shooting and a July 22 mobile home shooting in North Laurel that left two people seriously injured.
