Havre de Grace Police still investigating shooting in downtown business district

Havre de Grace Police said Wednesday evening they had no more information to release about the Sunday morning shooting in the downtown business district.

Cpl. Dan Petz, a Havre de Grace Police spokesman, said no additional information was ready to be released about the incident that left an unnamed 61-year-old man in the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore being treated for gunshot wounds.

The criminal investigation division is “still actively investigating and has no further information,” Petz said Wednesday.

“I can’t give anything more due to the integrity of the investigation,” he said.

While some in Havre de Grace were in the midst of Veterans Day observances Sunday morning, Havre de Grace Police were investigating a shooting in the downtown business district.

Police were called to the 200 block of North Washington Street at about 9:30 a.m. to help emergency medical services personnel with someone reported to have a laceration, according to Havre de Grace Police.

When responding police arrived, they determined the subject did not have a laceration, but instead his injuries were from gunshots, police said. Patrol officers called in Havre de Grace Police detectives who took over the investigation.

The victim, identified by police only as a 61-year-old male, was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for treatment. No other information about the victim, or what happened to him, was made available.

“Havre de Grace Detectives are still on scene actively investigating the incident,” Petz wrote in an emailed statement Sunday afternoon. “At this time we believe this is an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public.”

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call Havre de Grace Police at 410-939-2121.
