Columbia shooting wounds 3 teens


Three teen-agers were wounded yesterday evening during what Howard County police said appears to be a drive-by shooting in Columbia's Wilde Lake village.

None of the teen-agers was critically hurt, said county police spokeswoman Pfc. Lisa Myers.

As of yesterday evening, Howard County police said they could not release the names of the victims because not all family members had been notified. They did say all three are Columbia residents, one an 18-year-old man, and two juveniles - a girl and a boy.

Shots were fired from a black car as it drove around the Bryant Woods apartments on Daystar Court, Myers said.

The incident may have stemmed from an earlier altercation involving the same car and group of teen-agers, Myers said.

Some witnesses said they heard six popping sounds and saw a black car speed out of the parking lot about 5 p.m.
