Odenton shooting leaves one injured today


The Anne Arundel County Police Department (AACPD) is reporting a shooting that took place today in the 700 Block of Hammond Branch Road, in Odenton, not far from Piney Orchard Parkway.


The shooting was apparently the result of a confrontation outdoors, but the shooting victim was reportedly a bystander who was living in a nearby residence.

A person of interest is in custody, according to police, and there is no ongoing threat to the community.
