Around the same time, Maryland State Police found a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Hanson Road and Woodbridge Center way, less than a mile away. Three men, including one suffering from a gunshot wound to his lower body, were found, police said.

Three men identified as Jahmee Isiah Ballard, 24, of Havre de Grace; Ramon Mendoza, 22, of Aberdeen, and Garfield Smith, III, 29, of Middle River, were taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Smith, who had the gunshot wound, is recovering at the hospital; Balland and Mendoza were treated and released, police said.

The initial investigation suggests that Ballard, Mendoza and Smith were involved in the shooting on Harford Square Drive, police said. While fleeing in a gray Jeep, the driver ran a red light on Hanson Road and another vehicle with right-of-way struck the Jeep, according to police. No one in the second vehicle was injured, police said.

A third vehicle, a silver Acura, also appears to have been involved in the shooting. It was found in the area of Harford Square Drive and F Court with damage caused by gunfire, police said.

Some houses in the area were also hit with bullets, police said.
