Around the same time deputies responded to the scene, Rashard Kareen Brown, 39, walked into the emergency room of Harford Memorial Hospital in Havre de Grace suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper body. His wounds are also not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

Police found a fourth victim, Kevin Maurice Lewis, 37, at around 12:59 a.m. Friday after he drove himself to University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, according to law enforcement. His injuries aren’t expected to be life-threatening, police said.

Detectives collected evidence, interviewed witnesses and reviewed video footage of the incident, according to a news release. No arrests have been made.

At a Friday press conference, Chief Deputy William Davis said the sheriff’s office does not have a motive or a suspect at this time. Deputies are interviewing witnesses and searching for video of the incident.

Investigators do not believe this was a random incident or that there is a threat to the greater community, the sheriff’s office stated in a news release.

Davis said all three of those shot were in the same area, and that the shooting occurred outside. None of those shot lived on the street where the incident occurred. At this point, he said, they do not know the number of shooters.

Pugh was charged in the 2012 shooting of Jemar Hunt in Edgewood, according to Kyle Andersen, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office. He was sentenced to serve seven years in prison on charges of attempted second-degree murder and a related firearms charge. Electronic court records indicate he was released on probation in 2018.

Police also believe that Pugh Jr. is related to a Charles Pugh who was shot and killed in August 2017 in Edgewood, Andersen said. Derek Holder was arrested in connection to that shooting and, according to electronic court records, is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence that began in July 2018 for that crime.

Anyone with information about Thursday’s shooting, or who may have video of the incident, is asked to call the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division, at 410-836-5442.

Those who wish to remain anonymous may report their information through Metro Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-866-7LOCKUP. A cash reward of up to $2,000 is being offered if information provided leads to the arrest and indictment of the individuals responsible for this crime.
