LA PLATA, Md. (March 22, 2013)The Charles County Sheriff's Office released the following incident and arrest reports.
SHOOTING IN WALDORF: The Sheriffs Office is investigating a shooting that occurred at 3 p.m. Thursday on Wingate Place in Waldorf. Preliminary information is as follows: The victim - an adult male - was in a car on Wingate Place when a group of suspects fired shots, striking the victim in the upper body. The victim was able to get to another location where police and medical personnel responded. The victim was transported to a hospital. At this point, evidence suggests this was not a random act and detectives are following leads.
Update: Three persons of interest were taken into custody on Thursday around 4:30 p.m. It appears the suspects were not standing outside on the street when they fired the shots; rather, they were all inside the victims car. The suspects and victim are known to each other.
