A Dundalk man was in critical condition Saturday morning after police said he was shot by a neighbor — allegedly after accidentally parking in the neighbor's driveway.

At about 9:30 p.m. Friday, a 45-year-old man parked by mistake in a driveway along the 7800 block of Fairgreen Road, according to Baltimore County Police. Another man, 55, the apparent homeowner, came outside and confronted the man, pulled out a handgun and shot him multiple times, police said.

"He just pulled up in the wrong driveway," said police spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough.

The victim was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where he was in critical condition, McCullough said.

The alleged shooter, however, barricaded himself inside his home, McCullough said. Police and hostage negotiators talked with him throughout the night until police were able to enter the home and take him into custody at 4 a.m.

The alleged shooter faces possible charges of attempted murder and first-degree assault, McCullough said.
