MARRIOTTSVILLE, Md. (AP/WJZ) — Howard County police say a 15-year-old boy is in critical but stable condition after being

Authorities say they do not believe the gunshot was self-inflicted and are investigating the possibility of foul play.
No further information was immediately available.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident to determine what lead up to the shooting. Anyone with information should call police at 410-313-STOP. Investigators are offering a reward of up to $2,000.
