February 04, 2010|By Andrea F. Siegel

An Odenton man was in critical condition Wednesday after he was shot repeatedly in his home by masked intruders, Anne Arundel County police said.

The 24-year-old man, whose identity was not released, was home in the 500 block of Williamsburg Lane about 9 p.m. Tuesday when two men entered through an unlocked door and then overpowered a 74-year-old man who was also in the house, police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said.

The intruders - one with a gray knit cap pulled over his face, the other with a bandanna over the lower part of his face - fought with the 24-year-old man and his 21-year-old girlfriend, striking her with an unknown object and shooting him several times, Mulcahy said. They left the area in a silver Dodge pickup truck, Mulcahy said.

Detectives are investigating the possibility that the victims were targeted. Both were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The woman was treated and released, Mulcahy said.
