An Annapolis man was shot multiple times early yesterday at College Creek Terrace, Annapolis police said.

Sellman told police that two men approached him as he stood on the street. The three had a brief conversation before one of the men pulled a handgun and shot Sellman once in the chest and once in the abdomen, said Officer Hal Dalton, a spokesman for Annapolis police.
Sellman gave police the names of the men, who are being sought for questioning, officials said.
