University of Maryland Shock Trauma has confirmed that two shooting victims have been sent to the local hospital in critical condition from injuries consistent with gunshot-related injuries, according to FOX45 Baltimore.


The suspect was not in custody and police had launched a dragnet for the shooter, identified by Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler as 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan posted to Facebook:

“I just got off the phone with Harford County Executive Barry Glassman and Sheriff Jeff Gahler and reaffirmed the state’s complete and full support as they respond to this tragic shooting. Maryland State Police and other state law enforcement are actively working with federal and local law enforcement to apprehend the suspect.

State helicopters are in the air and State Troopers are on the ground from multiple barracks. I ask all citizens – especially those in this area – to please remain vigilant, and if you think you may have any information about this terrible crime, please call 911 immediately. The First Lady and I ask that all Marylanders join with us in praying for the victims, their loved ones, and those still fighting to live.”

The Sheriff’s office posted via social media on their Twitter feed at approximately 9:10 a.m. local time that there was police activity at the business park and that people should avoid the area.


“I can confirm that we are on the scene of the shooting in the 2100 block of Emmorton Park Road,” Kyle Andersen, spokesperson for the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, said via text message at 9:35 a.m.

Emmorton Business Park is located just south of the Interstate 95 interchange with Route 24.  Parts of the business park are visible from the highway. Harford County Sheriff’s office has requested of all media to refrain airing any aerial video to avoid any revelation of the tactical positioning of the scene.  The scene is still considered active at this time.

The Baltimore office of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is on the scene working hand in hand with local Baltimore police in containing the scene and in their investigation.

All businesses in the immediate area are on lockdown and local schools are reporting modified lockdown as a safety precaution.  Edgewood area schools were placed on a modified lockdown, the Harford County Public School system reported the following message on its website –

“This is an important message regarding an incident in the community that has affected the school day at Edgewood High School, Edgewood Middle School, Deerfield Elementary School, Edgewood Elementary School and William Paca/Old Post Road Elementary School. On the advice of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, these schools are currently on modified lockdown due to an incident in the surrounding community.

The modified lockdowns are being conducted in an abundance of caution. The modified lockdown requires students to remain in the building, with no outside activities. In addition, no visitors are permitted to enter our building at this time. When we are given the all clear by the Sheriff’s Office and the modified lockdown is lifted, we will update the affected school communities.

Our schools are secure at this time and we ask for your patience and understanding that we are receiving an influx of calls and you may not be able to get through right away- we will do our best to answer any questions you may have if it is necessary to contact the affected schools at this time.”
