Reports of shots fired brought police to a Glen Burnie neighborhood Wednesday evening. Two assailants had fired repeatedly at a 22-year-old man as he ran from the 400 block of Secluded Post Circle to a nearby park. Anne Arundel County officers arrived at about 10:40 p.m. and found the victim had been struck by a handgun.

The victim told police two men confronted him as he exited his car, chased him and fired at him several times, but missed him. The suspects caught him at the park and struck him with the gun, police said.

The victim, who, police said, was targeted by the shooters, managed to escape from the suspects, who fled on foot toward Elvaton Road. Patrol officers and a K-9 unit searched the area, but did not locate the suspects. The victim is being treated for non-life threatening injuries at Baltimore Washington Medical Center, police said.
