Thursday, October 27, 2011 – Robert Lang and Steve Fermier
Baltimore County Police are investigating two shootings overnight. 

One happened at or near a gas station in Arbutus at around 8 p.m.  Police said a 20 year old man was shot at the Gulf station along Leeds Avenue.

Police have no information yet on a suspect.  It’s also not clear if the man was a customer or an employee, Det. Cathy Batton said. 

The victim was transferred to Shock Trauma after being taken to St. Agnes.

About two hours later a shooting on a street in Essex apparently started as a robbery attempt.  Det. Batton said a 27 year old man was approached by two “black males” one of whom had a gun.  The victim was shot along Nerbay Road but apparently was able to run to another location where a passerby called 911.

He was taken to Shock Trauma.

No suspects or arrests reported.

Anyone with potential leads is asked to contact Baltimore County Police.
