Howard County police are investigating a shooting April 22 in which an adult female shot her mother inside a residence in Ellicott City. Police took the woman into custody at the scene and her mother was transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in critical condition.
Police were called at approximately 4:45 p.m. to a residence in the 2900 block of Bethany Lane where they located a 55-year-old woman with multiple gunshot wounds. Investigators determined that the victim had been shot by her 32-year-old daughter, who was still on-scene when they arrived.
Two children who were at the residence were unharmed but transported to Johns Hopkins Children’s Center as a precaution. Charges are pending against the suspect. Police have not yet determined a motive for the shooting.
