A dispute between two groups at a Crofton house party probably led to the shooting early Sunday of a 22-year-old man, police said Monday.

Anne Arundel County police said officers responded to calls of shots fired outdoors about 2:22 a.m. in the area of Judicial Way and Lower Court — near Route 424 and Reidel Road. Witnesses told police that a man was helped into a vehicle, which drove away.

Police said the 22-year-old was at a party on Lower Court before the shooting. He was involved with one of the two groups of people with a dispute, but spokesman Justin Mulcahy said Monday the nature of the argument was not immediately known.

"There is a lot of follow-up investigation to conduct here," Mulcahy said. "The investigation is ongoing."

Police located the victim about 2:40 a.m. near the Baltimore-Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie, where the victim's friends were taking him for help, police said.

After initial treatment, the victim was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. He was reported in critical but stable condition.

No charges have been filed.
