Harford County Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating two separate shootings, one of which left someone dead, in the 600 block of Edgewood Road in Edgewood.
About 12:25 p.m. Saturday, deputies responded to a report of a shooting in the 600 block of Edgewood Road and discovered Christopher Smith, 22, of Edgewood with gunshot wounds in his upper body. Deputies and, upon their arrival, medics tried to save Smith’s life, eventually transporting him to Johns Hopkins Bayview, where he died.
No suspect was apprehended after a canvass and K-9 scan of the area. Anyone with information is asked to call 410-409-3546 or submit an anonymous tip at www.p3tips.com.
Saturday’s shooting is believed to be unrelated to an incident that left two men wounded on the same block a day earlier, a sheriff’s office spokesperson said.
About 4:16 a.m. Friday, officers responded to a report of a stabbing victim at a Royal Farms in the 600 block of Edgewood Road. They found two 19-year-olds, one with a probable gunshot wound in the upper arm and the other with a stab wound in the lower body, inside a vehicle.
Deputies provided first aid until medics arrived, and both victims were transported to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. The stabbing victim has been released, while the apparent shooting victim was transferred to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, officials said.
The investigation is ongoing, though there appears to be no threat to the community, officials said. The department did not offer any further details. Anyone with information is asked to call the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division at 410-836-5442.
