WOODLAWN, Md. (WJZ) — A man is dead after an altercation in front of a Woodlawn home lead to his fatal shooting, police said.
Baltimore County Police are now looking for the suspect who fled the scene in Woodlawn before officers arrived.
According to the report, the shooting occurred just before 6 a.m. Sunday morning.
Sleeping neighbors awoke to sirens.
Police said 26-year-old Andy Lymonne Jackson Connely was shot at least once in his upper body during an altercation in front of a home in the 5900 block of Queen Anne Street.
“The victim fled. He ran on foot and he ended up on Ingleside Avenue,” Officer Jennifer Peach. “He collapsed in someone’s driveway there.”
Connely, of the unit block of Lincoln Avenue in Catonsville, ran from the scene and collapsed in a nearby driveway in the 1100 block of Ingleside Avenue.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The aftermath of this shooting played out all morning in front of the whole neighborhood.
Some are so worried about the violence they wouldn’t talk to WJZ on camera.
“I just saw cops up and down the street,” said Michael Leeper. “And then I just saw a body sitting there, covered up.”
Leeper said due to the violence in his neighborhood, he wants to move.
“It’s just getting worse, you know? I’ve lived here 17 years and it gets a little bit worse each year,” he said.
Just three days ago, a shooting on Deveraux Court injured a 21 year old man.
In mid-September, another man was shot in the leg after an argument.
But county police say this suspect and victim likely knew each other.
“We believe that they probably were acquainted prior to this,” Peach added. “That’s going to help us with our investigation, certainly. And I think that kind of helps put the neighborhood at ease.”
There is no description of the shooter, and police are asking for tips.
Police are asking anyone who may have information to contact the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit by calling 410-307-2020.
