Police: Two juveniles shot in Annapolis

Police have not said exactly how old the victims are or what may have led up to the shooting.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Police are investigating after two young people were shot in Annapolis Monday evening.

According to a tweet from Annapolis Police, the shooting happened in the 1300 block of Tyler Avenue just after 7 p.m. 

When officers arrived, they found two juveniles, only identified as a 15-year-old boy and an 11-year-old girl, who had been shot. The two victims were taken to nearby hospitals for help. 

The 11-year-old girl was released from the hospital and the 15-year-old boy is still hospitalized in stable condition. 

An additional young person was injured, police said. The Annapolis Police Department said a 15-year-old girl was injured during the incident but says there is no indication that her injuries are attributed to gunshot wounds.

Officers say the boy and girl were outside when a suspect walked out of a wooded area and began shooting. Officers do not believe the victims were targeted and believe the shots came from one location.

Annapolis Police Chief Edward Jackson says he will personally be contacting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and federal partners for any assistance they can provide to the investigation.

Police do not believe there is a threat to the community but have stepped up their presence in the area. 

No suspect information has been released. Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call 410-260-3439.
