Two men wounded in shooting during chase near Lothian

Two men were reported in serious condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being shot during a car chase Wednesday night near Lothian, according to Anne Arundel County police.

Officers who were called to the scene of a reported shooting at Route 4 and Lower Pindell Road found the two victims in a car. The men told police that they had fled an argument at Rio Vista Trailer Park, on Sands Road at Almas Way, and were chased by four men in an older-model Subaru who shot at them about 10 p.m.

The victims' car ran off the road after the shooting and skidded to a stop near the intersection. Each man had been shot multiple times.

The first, a 40-year-old from Chesapeake Beach, was hit in the arms. The second, a 23-year-old from Dunkirk in Calvert County, sustained upper-body wounds.

Police declined to release the men's names.

A Pasadena man was arrested on assault and other charges after two people had been shot at near the man's home Wednesday night, police said.

Police said the suspect was holed up in a house in the 8000 block of Tower Bridge Drive after the reported gunfire. Officers surrounded the house and made several attempts to contact the man, eventually taking him into custody without incident.
