PASADENA, Md. (WJZ) — An attempted murder-suicide is under investigation in Pasadena Friday.
Around 12:30 a.m., Anne Arundel County police and fire responded to the 300 block of Ridge Road for a reported shooting.
When they arrived, first responders found two people suffering from gunshot wounds.
A woman was taken to a local trauma center for treatment of her life-threatening injuries, while a 33-year-old Arnold man was found suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on scene.
