A kayaker in Anne Arundel County was shot in the stomach while paddling in a creek Saturday night, police said.
David Seafolk-Kopp, 56, told Maryland Natural Resources Police investigators that he was stargazing on Bodkin Creek when he saw a campfire on shore and could hear people yelling and partying, NRP spokeswoman Candy Thomson said. He then saw a red laser dot on his stomach, and was shot in the upper right abdomen.
Seafolk-Kopp, who lives in Reston, Va. and has family in Anne Arundel County, had launched his kayak from a friend's home in the 1400 block of Park Road, Thomson said. He made it back to that area Sunday after 10:30 a.m., and a resident of a nearby home found him. He didn't know what time the shooting occurred.
