A 45-year-old man was hospitalized after being shot at My Place Bar & Lounge early Saturday morning, a fire department representative said. Another man was grazed by a bullet, but was not seriously injured.
Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman Lt. Jack Beall said the 45-year-old man was transported by ambulance to Maryland Shock Trauma in Baltimore. The incident occurred at My Place Bar & Lounge in Odenton at about 1:25 a.m., Beall said.
Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Lt. Doyle Batten said the doorman of the bar was shot in an extremity by a customer. A bystander was also struck, possibly by a grazed bullet, Batten said. However, none of the injuries were life threatening, he said.
Batten said authorities have a suspect, but have not yet made an arrest. The investigation is ongoing.
This is not the first act of violence that has occured near the My Place. Community groups in 2011 sought to block the renewal of the bar's liquor license following a triple shooting in the vicinity. The county liquor board allowed the bar to retain the license and the bar remained opened.
