November 06, 2008|By Richard Irwin

An elderly woman was shot last night in a vehicle outside a Parkville senior apartment complex during an attempted carjacking, Baltimore County police said. The woman, believed to be in her 80s, suffered a graze wound to the torso and was treated at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and released, authorities said. There was no arrest.

About 7:30 p.m., a gunman approached the vehicle outside the Park View at Taylor senior apartments in the 4100 block of Taylor Ave. and attempted to force the female passenger and her husband out and drive off. One occupant apparently rolled up a window and the gunman fired into the car, hitting the woman. The gunman fled on foot, and police were not able to find him.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Parkville Precinct at 410-887-5310.
