Three Killed, 3 More Wounded In Mass Shooting At Maryland Home

Annapolis, MD – Six people were shot, and three of them died, after an “interpersonal dispute” at a private residence erupted into an exchange of gunfire on Sunday night, according to police.

Annapolis police received a report at approximately 8 p.m. on June 11 saying multiple people had been shot at a home located in the 1000-block of Paddington Place, WBFF reported.

They responded to the residence and located three victims outside the house, all of whom had been fatally shot, according to police.

The three victims were pronounced dead at the scene, WBFF reported.

Police found three more wounded victims inside the house.

All three of the surviving victims were rushed to local hospitals, WBFF reported.

At least one of them was airlifted to a Shock Trauma Unit.

Their conditions were not immediately released.

Police said a person of interest has been taken into custody, WBFF reported.

They have not officially confirmed that person is the gunman, but said there is no threat to the public.

Investigators did not release the identity of the person who was taken into custody.

They said the three victims who died in the mass shooting ranged in age from their early 20s to about 50 years of age, Annapolis Police Chief Edward Jackson said during a press conference on Sunday night.

All six of the victims were male.

Investigators said they believe some sort of dispute broke out at the house and that an exchange of gunfire occurred, resulting in the six victims being shot, WBFF reported.

A motive was not immediately released.

“It wasn’t random, but the relationship between the suspects and the victims, we really don’t know,” Chief Jackson told reporters.

He said the shooting stemmed from an “interpersonal dispute.”

Chief Jackson said at least one gun has been recovered.

The police chief was unable to estimate how many rounds were fired during the exchange of gunfire.

Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley said the neighborhood where the shooting occurred is generally quiet and safe, but that incidents of gun violence are rising everywhere.

“Tonight was an example of, yet again, senseless violence. People trying to resolve issues with guns. It is just the most ridiculous thing that we can do as a society,” Buckley said at the joint press conference with Chief Jackson. “We are saddened for the families, saddened for Annapolis that they have to deal with things like this.”
