Police in Anne Arundel County are searching for a 25-year-old man in connection with a double shooting early Saturday morning at a bar near Fort Meade in Odenton in which a bouncer and a bar patron were wounded.

Raynard Leo Boston, of no fixed address, is wanted on a series of charges related to the shooting at the My Place Bar and Lounge, including attempted second-degree murder, county police said Tuesday. His whereabouts are unknown and he is potentially armed and dangerous, police said.

Police responded to the bar, located in the 1600 block of Annapolis Road, about 1:25 a.m. for a report of a shooting and found the 45-year-old bouncer shot in the lower body and "an innocent 34-year-old male bystander" shot in the hand, police said.

An investigation showed the bouncer and Boston were engaged in a "verbal altercation" when Boston allegedly began shooting, striking the bouncer and the other patron before fleeing, police said.

Both victims were taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Neither has been publicly identified.

Boston, who previously lived in Severn, has been convicted in the past of robbery and assault, according to court records.

Anyone with information about Boston's current location is asked to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detective Kevin Carberry at 410-222-6155.
