A woman who was fatally shot was found about 10 last night in a late-model, blue Mercedes-Benz sedan on a shopping center parking lot in an upscale community of Arnold, Anne Arundel County police said.
A short time later, a man surrendered to police and told them he had shot the victim and where she was. He was being interviewed by homicide detectives at Western District in Odenton.
He was not identified, and police were withholding the victim's name pending notification of kin.
Officer Debbie Mabe, a spokeswoman, said police went to the College Parkway Shopping Center, in the 1200 block of Bay Dale Drive in the Bay Hills section of Arnold, and found the body in the car, parked behind the Super Fresh supermarket.
The body was taken to the state medical examiner's office in Baltimore, police said.
