Police Investigate Monday Night Shooting Near Fullerton Elementary

Investigators do not believe the shooting was a random act of violence.

County police are investigating an incident in which a man was shot multiple times Monday night in Overlea-Fullerton.

Around 11:51 p.m. an unidentified man was walking along Fullerton Avenue "near Fullerton Elementary School" on his way to the store, according to Cpl. Cathleen Batton, a Baltimore County Police Department spokeswoman.

As the man neared the intersection of Fullerton and Linden Avenues, a vehicle pulled up alongside him, someone reached out the window and fired several shots striking the victim multiple times, Batton said.

The victim, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, was transported to a local hospital, Batton said. 

Police do not believe that the incident was a random act of violence, according to Batton.

That`s putting it lightly!! It has gotten REALLY BAD around here. I won`t even leave my house by myself. Thugs are breaking into homes while the occupants are still there! We are also surrounded by at least 100 registered violent sex offenders! We are very close to the city line. I`ve witnessed a vehicular shoot-out coming from Northern Parkway onto Belair Road. Drugs, robbery and rape are running rampant around here! VERY SCARY!!!

I have been reading your comments and would just like to weigh in here. First of all, my grandson plays football for Overlea-Fullerton and I have NEVER seen any of the kids or parents leave any trash around either during or after games and practice. In fact, the coaches and parents go out of their way to police the area and clean up from the drinks and snacks provided to the boys. This sounds to me like just another attempt to dismantle the athletic programs at Overlea-Fullerton. These boys take pride in their program and even went to the playoffs. Instead of putting them down we need to support them more. They are overlooked by the county and the parks director. So instead of jumping on that bandwagon, why not come out to a home game and support them - get involved. I was born and raised in this area and moved back and am proud to have my grandson play for both the Overlea-Fullerton football and lacrosse programs and will do anything I can to keep these programs viable.

I still have family in that area and I don't believe the neighbor is unsafe. As for the football program, I have been to games and watch practice and I have never seen parents leave trash behind. Instead of putting the programs down, which help kids and may just keep them out of trouble, why not add my programs or sports. I have been told that Susan Cormack doesn't want the kid programs/sports at the rec center. The people of Linover/Overlea/Fullerton need to band together and go after the real eye sore in that community and that's Ms. Cormack.
