September 25, 2014|By Kevin Rector | The Baltimore Sun

Police are investigating an alleged "bias incident" in Baltimore County on Thursday afternoon in which a driver allegedly shot a BB or airsoft gun in the direction of three pedestrians as he yelled "Jews, Jews, Jews" at them.

The three males told police they were in the 6800 block of Old Pimlico Road about 5:30 p.m., near the intersection with Green Summit Road when the driver approached them, rolled down his window, held a weapon outside and yelled the taunt, police said.

He then fired the weapon, which "appeared to be some type of BB or air gun," in their direction, police said. None of them were struck, and none suffered injuries.

However, police said officers who responded did find a hole in a glass window at the nearby Bais Hamedrash & Mesivta of Baltimore. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
