Charges filed against Middle River drive-by double shooting victims



MIDDLE RIVER, MD—Police say they have filed charges against the victims in last week’s drive-by shooting in Middle River.

On Friday, Baltimore County detectives filed criminal charges against the two individuals injured in the double shooting that occurred Tuesday morning in Middle River.

Both defendants, who have not yet been identified, have been charged with drug- and firearm-related charges, which stem from illegal drugs and a weapon detectives discovered in the defendants’ vehicle.

At around 10:15 a.m. on July 26, officers responded to the intersection of Compass Road and Martin Boulevard following reports of a shooting. When officers arrived, they located a 43-year-old male and a 42-year-old female suffering from gunshot wounds.

Based on cell phone video provided to detectives, at least one automatic weapon was used to commit this crime, which detectives believe was a targeted shooting. Police say they believe the victims were drug dealers.

As the search for the shooter in this case continues, detectives are asking anyone who may have information about this case to call 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers Of Maryland at 1-866-7-LOCKUP.
