The Harford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the fatal shooting of a 40-year-old man overnight in Edgewood, which is at least the fourth deadly shooting in the community this year.
Deputies were on proactive foot patrol in the area of Edgewater Village early Friday morning and at about 3:20 a.m., heard a gunshot from the area of Grempler Way and Brookside Drive, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded and found Joshua Dwayne Crouse, of Joppa, in the road in the 1800 block of Grempler Way.
Deputies began life-saving measures. Medics from Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company responded and pronounced Crouse dead at 3:50 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office said.
No further information regarding motive or suspects was available.
Police, who were told three males were seen running away, searched the area but did not find any suspects. No arrests have been made in Youngquist’s shooting death, the sheriff’s office said.
