Harford sheriff’s office investigating weekend shooting after possible road rage incident in Edgewood

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on a shooting that alleged occurred after a possible road rage incident Sunday in Edgewood, the office reported Tuesday.

On Sunday, deputies responded to a report of a shooting in the area of Willoughby Beach Road and Oak Street in Edgewood at approximately 4:35 p.m. When deputies arrived, they found a man in a gray Honda Acura who said he had been shot at by another man after a road rage incident, according to a news release.


The sheriff’s office did not release the name of the man who was shot at. He was treated at the scene for injuries unrelated to gunfire. The release stated he was found with cuts and abrasions.

An investigation revealed that the man had been driving on Willoughby Beach Road when two other vehicles passed him and their occupants began to gesture and mock him. He followed the two vehicles to Flying Point Park.


“At the park, a verbal altercation ensued between the victim and a male, when the unknown male challenged the victim to a fight and told the victim to follow him before driving away,” the release states.

A short time later at Palmetto Drive and Redbud Road, the suspect rolled down his window and shot at the man’s car before driving off, hitting the vehicle in the process.

Deputies responding to the scene at approximately 4:39 p.m. spotted a car that matched the description of the alleged shooter near the intersection of Route 24 and Trimble Road, according to the release. They tried to stop the car, but did not. It was found abandoned on the 300 block of McCann Street.

“A short time later, at 4:53 p.m., deputies responded to Flying Point Park for the report of a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was identified as the one involved in the incident,” the release states.

The sheriff’s office encouraged anyone with information about the crime to call its investigators at 410-836-5442.
