Police: 3-year-old injured in morning shooting, investigation underway

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – Maryland State Police say an investigation is underway after a 3-year-old boy was injured in a shooting early Monday morning.

We’re told that shortly after 8:30 a.m., troopers responded to a home in the 30000 block of Bardwell Drive in Princess Anne for a reported shooting that injured a young boy. On arrival, troopers found the victim and his father being loaded into an ambulance.
