Two Injured By Gunfire In Shots Fired Incident

A third person was assaulted.

Two people were shot in Urbana early Sunday morning.

The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were dispatched to the area of Atterbury Lane in the Villages of Urbana at around 1:43 AM where a juvenile was hosting party. They learned three victims were driven to Frederick Memorial Hospital: two had gunshot wounds and one was treated for injuries for an unprovoked assault. Their injuries are not considered life threatening.

Investigators conducted interviews and canvassed the area, but they say many of the witnesses refused to cooperate. The victims were also not willing to speak with investigators.

But deputies learned that specific individuals at the party were targeted, and this was not a random act of violence.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Det. M. Davies at 301-600-1168. They can also remain anonymous and call the Sheriff’s Office Tip Hotline at 301-600-4141.
