UPDATE: (5:15p.m.)—Two people were shot in Eastport near midnight on Sunday, according to the Annapolis Police Department.
The shooting incident also damaged a meter, resulting in a natural gas leak.
Police responded to the Eastport Terrace neighborhood of Annapolis at 11:38 p.m. Sunday and emergency personnel discovered a 22-year-old Annapolis man with gunshot wounds to his head, back and buttocks on Medgar Evars Street. A 27-year-old Severna Park man with a gunshot wound to his back was found on President Street.
The 22-year-old was flown by helicopter to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he is reportedly in critical condition.
The 27-year-old was driven by ambulance to Prince George's County Shock Trauma and was released after treatment this morning, according to a police press release.
The identity of the shooter(s) remains unknown.
In addition to the victims, a stray bullet hit a gas meter causing a leak. The Annapolis Fire Department turned off the gas and waited for BGE to respond.
Battalion Chief John Menassa said that a utility company crew decided to leave the gas line off overnight because the area was a crime scene.
Menassa said area residents were not evacuated as a result of the gas leak.
