Baltimore County police are investigating a homicide that occurred in a Dundalk apartment Thursday afternoon.

Officers were called around 1 p.m. to the 2000 block of Paulette Road for a shooting. They found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.

Police said they had a suspect in custody shortly after the shooting. They have not identified either the suspect or victim.
