March 22, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An unidentified man was shot yesterday afternoon, apparently while sitting in his car on the parking lot of a nursing and assisted-living facility in the Villa Nova section of Baltimore County.

County police refused last night to provide information on the shooting, which occurred about 2:15 p.m. outside the 300-resident Augsburg Lutheran Home and Village in the 6800 block of Campfield Road.

The victim was not a resident there, according to Glenn Scherer, Augsburg executive director. He said the man drove onto the parking lot of the home and was sitting in his car next to a trash container when another man approached and shot him.

Sherer said the wounded man managed to enter the kitchen of one of the home's buildings on the 52-acre complex, where he was aided by a nurse and other staff members as police were alerted.

The victim was flown by state police helicopter to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, said a county Fire Department official. The victim's condition was not available.
