A Jessup man was shot in the leg Tuesday night as he walked to his car in the 1500 block of W. Nursery Road, county police said.
Raymond Antoine Griggs, 33, was approached about 10 p.m. by a man who asked for a ride. Before Mr. Griggs could answer, the man pulled out a small-caliber revolver and fired two shots, one bullet hitting the victim in the upper right thigh, police said.
The gunman ran into some woods toward the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and escaped. Mr. Griggs went into an office building in the same block and told a security guard he had been shot, police said.
NB Mr. Griggs was treated at North Arundel Hospital and released.
