Suspect's vehicle found miles away after man shot at Harford Mall

BALTIMORE – A man was injured in a shooting at the Harford Mall in Bel Air Sunday afternoon, and the suspect's vehicle was found miles away, police said.

At around 4:06 p.m., officers arrived at the mall because a shooting was reported there. However, police are not saying it was an active shooter.

A vehicle believed to be the suspect's was found unoccupied in Edgewood, while the shooter remains at large, Bel Air police said.

There is no description of the suspect, but officials said the vehicle initially reported was a red SUV.

“Based on witness statements, we were able to identify a potentially suspicious vehicle, which led us to a possible suspect,” said Bel Air Police Detective Keith Smithson.

The mall was evacuated around 5:30 p.m. Officials said there was no danger to the immediate area, but people should continue to avoid the area while the investigation continues.

The man was taken to hospital, where his condition is stable, according to police.

“When our officers arrived, they immediately encountered a victim, an adult male,” Smithson said. “They rendered aid to the victim, who is in stable condition and was transported to a Baltimore hospital.”
