On October 27 at 8 p.m., officers responded to the area of Bannister Circle and St Ignatius Drive for the report of a shooting. A preliminary investigation showed an adult male was on Bannister Circle when a car pulled up and someone fired a gun. The victim, who was struck in his hip, was transported to a hospital and treated for injuries that are not life-threatening. Detectives are pursuing leads and looking into the possibility this was not a random act. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Worley at 301-609-6518.
