A 25-year-old man died after he was shot Sunday night in the parking lot of Mo's Seafood in Glen Burnie.

The Anne Arundel County police department identified the victim as Andrew Michael Johnson of the 100 block of Sloane Drive in Glen Burnie.

According to police, officers responded to a report of a shooting about 10:34 p.m. Sunday outside the seafood restaurant, in the 7100 block of Ritchie Highway. Officers found the victim in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the upper torso, police said. A fire department crew took him to Harbor Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Johnson received six months of probation before judgment in a 2007 drug possession case, after he entered an Alford plea — acknowledging there was evidence to convict him but not admitting to the crime, according to court records. In 2009, he was sentenced to a year in jail followed by a year of supervised probation after he pleaded guilty in another drug case, according to court records. Both were in Anne Arundel County.

According to the police statement, a preliminary investigation by homicide detectives indicates that the victim was targeted and that the incident was not a random shooting. The investigation continues, and anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Detective Norval Cooper at 410-222-3453 or, to remain anonymous, Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
