Police said officers responded to the 5600 block of Cedar Lane just before 8:30 p.m. Saturday for a report of a shooting and found two men suffering from gunshot wounds.

After arriving at the scene, police said they discovered a group of people had gathered to shoot a music video when a male suspect in the group opened fire for an unknown reason before fleeing the scene. Through investigation, police said they were able to identify Dorsey as the suspect.

Sherod Madison Hogue, 26, of Columbia, was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and remains in critical condition Wednesday, police said. Gregory Peck McGraw, 31, of Baltimore, was also treated at shock trauma and has since been released.

Dorsey is currently being held at the Howard County Detention Center on no bond.

Police also are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred about 4 miles away from and less than 24 hours after Saturday’s shooting.

Police said officers were called to the 9600 block of Basket Ring Road just before 2:40 p.m. Sunday for that shooting. When officers arrived at the scene in the Oakland Mills neighborhood, police said they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds. Juan Michael Ross, 23, of Jessup, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Police also are investigating a third shooting that occurred early Monday morning.

Officers were called to the 7500 block of Monarch Mills Way at 1:35 a.m. Monday for several reports of gunshots. As they were searching the area, police said they learned a man with a gunshot wound in his leg had been driven to Howard County General Hospital by a friend. Deandre Cummings, 24, of Columbia, has since been released from the hospital, according to police.

Police said Monday they are looking into the possibility that the Sunday and Monday shootings may have been drug-related.

Police also said Monday they are trying to determine whether the shootings are connected in any way and whether those involved knew one another. All three investigations are ongoing.

Anyone with information on any of the three shootings should contact police at 410-313-STOP or HCPDcrimetips@howardcountymd.gov.
