Man killed while standing at bus stop in Middle River

One man was killed and a man and a woman were wounded in a triple shooting while standing at a bus stop in Middle River late Monday night, according to Baltimore County Police.

Officers responded to the 2100 block of Eastern Blvd., near the Hawthorne Plaza Shopping Center and not far from Martin State Airport, about 11:47 p.m. for a report of gunfire and found the three victims, police said.

An initial investigation indicated the three victims were standing at a bus stop when one or more suspects "approached them and began shooting," police said.

All three were transported to local hospitals. Robert Holiday, 27, of the 2300 block of Ashland Avenue in Baltimore was pronounced dead at Franklin Square Hospital, police said. The wounded victims — whose conditions have not been provided — were a 26-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman, police said.

Police did not have a suspect description as of Tuesday morning, and no arrests have been made, they said.

Police said they are "investigating whether there might be connections between the victims and the suspects, and whether the victims were targeted."

Police had originally said all three victims were men.
