Police arrest suspect in shootings at 3 buildings in Middle River, Md

ESSEX, Md. — Police say a person arrested on suspicion of firing a gun at three separate buildings in Middle River, Md, appeared to be having a mental health crisis.

The Baltimore Sun reports that no injuries were reported in the early Sunday morning shootings by somebody identified only as a male. Baltimore County police officers saw damage from the gunfire but didn’t immediately see a possible suspect after initially responding to a report of shots fired.

A second report of gunfire was reported about 25 minutes later at a district courthouse where bullets apparently shattered windows. After a third report of shooting, police found the suspect in a vehicle and took him to a hospital for evaluation.
