The son of a County Circuit Court judge who was shot and critically wounded Thursday night is recovering, hospital officials in Baltimoresaid yesterday.
Mark Alexander Thieme, the 29-year-old son of Judge Raymond G. Thieme Jr., suffered a punctured lung in the shooting at his Chelsea Beach home Thursday night.
He was in critical but stable condition yesterday at the MarylandShock Trauma Center. Hospital officials said he was "holding his own."
Investigators said they believe the shooting, which occurred about 8:30 p.m. in the hallway of Thieme's home on Riverside Drive, wasaccidental.
Thieme apparently was holding a shotgun by the barreland showing his wife a feature of the gun when it went off, said county police spokesman Officer V. Richard Molloy.
