Police: Sedan service driver shot during attempted robbery

shooting-news-graphicPolice are investigating a shooting that occurred early Saturday morning near Rosedale.

Detectives believe the shooting may have been connected to an attempted robbery.

At around 4:30 a.m., officers responded to the 6000-block of Marquette Road after a vehicle struck a tree. At the scene, police found evidence of a crash but no vehicle.

A short time later, Baltimore City police officers were called to a residence and found a man in a vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower body.

He was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated for a non-life-threatening injury.

Police then determined that the victim, an adult male, was a driver for a sedan service. The man picked up a fare in Baltimore City and took two men, now believed to be the suspects, to the 6000-block of Marquette Road at around 4:30 a.m.

Once there, the suspects displayed a gun and attempted to rob the driver. A struggle ensued and the victim was shot once in a lower extremity.

The two suspects fled the scene on foot while the victim got back into his vehicle.

The victim attempted to drive away but struck a tree first, then drove to a home in Baltimore City where a resident called 911.

Anyone who may have information about this crime or these suspects is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.
