ODENTON, Md. (WJZ)—An investigation is underway after a man fired several shots into an Odenton home, injuring a 19-month-old girl.
It happened around 9:45 p.m. Monday in the 600-block of Cadbury Drive.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with the victim/homeowner, a 25-year-old male, who said an unknown person or persons fired shots through his front window. The victim, his 26-year-old wife and their three young daughters –a 7-month-old, 19-month-old and 4-year-old–were inside of the home at the time of the incident.
The victim’s 19-month-old daughter was injured by glass fragments as the window shattered. She was treated at the scene for minor injuries. There were no other injuries reported.
