Shooting In Waldorf Leaves One Seriously Injured; Police Searching For Suspects

WALDORF, Md. -- We are receiving reports of a shooting that took place in Waldorf this evening that has police searching for the suspect.

At approximately 10:27 p.m. on July 6, first responders were dispatched to the scene of the 2400 block of Hanover Court for reports of shots fired. The initial call that was placed said one victim had been shot more than multiple times.

Upon arrival, crews discovered the 22-year-old male victim with seven or more gunshot wounds, and no suspects nearby. It is believed that the suspect (potentially more than one) fled the scene on foot. 

The victim is awake, breathing, and being examined by EMS to determine the extent of his injuries. A helicopter from the Maryland State Police Aviation is expected to transport the patient to a nearby trauma center.

Police are actively searching the area, and advise those to avoid the scene area if possible. Be advised to take cover in the area if you are able to.

This is a developing story. We will continue to provide updates as we receive them.
