BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police from Baltimore City and Baltimore County responded to a shooting near a shopping center in northeast Baltimore Tuesday that left two people injured.

Officers were called to the 2200 block of Perring Manor Road for a report of a shooting just before 4:30 p.m.

When they arrived, they found a 20-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the arm and a 26-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Both were taken to area hospitals for treatment.

A McDonald’s drive-thru and a gas station were roped off with crime scene tape as police responded to the scene, as was a nearby apartment complex.

Police from both agencies responded since it is right along the city/county line.

Neil Bon was at home taking a nap when gunfire erupted directly across the street.

“My daughter thought it was thunder,” Bon said. “It was probably a rapid-fire, so she probably thought it was rumbling in the sky. She didn’t know the difference from gunshots.”

Another neighbor spoke to WJZ about the shooting.

“It’s crazy, it’s crazy to see it in your own neighborhood,” they said.

There is no update on the condition of the victims in the hospital.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
