Police seek 2 teens in shooting at Chase home


December 24, 2005|By JOSH MITCHELL

Police were searching for two teen-agers accused of forcing their way into an eastern Baltimore County home in an attempted robbery Thursday and then shooting a female resident of the house as she tried to escape.

The two teen-agers knocked on the door of a home in the 7100 block of Cunning Circle in Chase about 6:45 p.m.

A 49-year-old woman answered the door and was struck on the head by one of the suspects with an unknown object, said Cpl. Michael Hill, a Baltimore County police spokesman. The suspects went through the house asking for the location of money and encountered the woman's 15-year-old daughter.

As the woman tried to run out of the house, one of the suspects shot her in the upper left shoulder, Hill said. She was able to run to a nearby road, where she flagged down a motorist who called police. The suspects fled, Hill said.

The woman was taken to Bayview Medical Center, where she underwent surgery for her injuries. Her daughter was not injured.

Police are trying to determine whether the suspects knew the victims.

"We're still doing interviews and trying to figure out if in fact there was any relationship between the victims and the suspects," Hill said yesterday. "It is unusual in that this particular area does not see this kind of crime."

Anyone with information is asked to call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020, or Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888.
