Boy, 7, remains hospitalized after shooting by mother in Dundalk domestic dispute
Baltimore, Md (3-27-16) A 7-year-old boy remained hospitalized Sunday with injuries that weren't life-threatening after his mother fired a gun at her husband, striking both him and their son, according to police.
Police have arrested the 30-year-old Dundalk woman who had wanted to take the couple's boy for the evening on Saturday, Baltimore County Police Department spokeswoman Jen Peach said.
Police received a call about a shooting in the 7300 block of School Avenue at about 7:05 p.m. The mother shot as the father turned to take their son inside, police said.
"She decided she was going to leave with the child and he said, 'No, you're not leaving,'" Peach said. "She fired one shot that struck the father in the arm and then continued on and struck the little boy on the hips and hands. The father was sort of shielding the son."
The father, 31, has been released from the hospital. The boy, originally identified by police as a 10-year-old, remained hospitalized "to make sure he doesn't have additional damage," Peach said.
The Baltimore County Violent Crimes Unit is investigating the incident. Charges were pending, and the couple was not identified.
