On January 30 at approximately 1:37 a.m., officers responded to a residence in the 500 block of University Drive in Waldorf for the report of a shooting.
When officers arrived, they located a 13-year-old inside the house suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was flown to a hospital and treated for injuries that were later determined to be not life-threatening.
A preliminary investigation revealed unknown suspect(s) fired several rounds at the house. One of the rounds went through the siding and struck the victim who was in a bedroom. No one else in the house was injured. It is not known at this point if the suspect(s) was in a car or on foot. Detectives are working leads and say it does not appear the shooting was random.
