ESSEX — One man was killed and another injured in a shooting outside Kings Mill Apartments and Townhomes Monday afternoon, an incident currently under investigation by Baltimore County Police.
Officers responded at 1:25 p.m. and found the two victims with gunshot wounds on the sidewalk of the 900 block of Ashbridge Drive. Both were transported to an area hospital, according to the police report, where one of the victims, Kenneth Andre Chamberlain, later died.
Chamberlain, 25, had just left one of the apartment buildings in the neighborhood with the second victim when he sustained at least one gunshot wound to the upper body.
The second victim, a 26-year-old man, also suffered at least one gunshot wound to the upper body. His condition is uncertain, and police have not released his name.
A suspect has yet to be identified.
Officer Jen Peach, a Baltimore County Police Department spokesperson, indicated that police don’t believe the shooter to be a threat to the general public. She told local media Monday that the shooting appears to have been targeted.
Officers were still on the scene as the cloudy afternoon darkened into evening, and detectives from the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit assumed the investigation.
