Crisfield Police investigating reports of armed person shooting at Crisfield Housing Authority

CRISFIELD — The Crisfield Police Department is investigating a shooting incident which occurred over the June 3-4 weekend in the Crisfield Housing Authority.


On Sunday, June 4, at approximately 12:07 p.m. hours, the Crisfield Police Department received dispatched calls for several incidents of an individual chasing a subject and that person was armed with a handgun shooting at the other individual.


Upon the police officer’s arrival, he was able to discern that the incident took place in the half-circle of the Crisfield Housing Authority. The officers spoke to several individuals who would state that one individual was shooting at another and that person entered a vehicle and drove off in an unknown direction.


The suspect did not shoot that individual and no injuries occurred. There were several children playing in the area and no one was injured. The Crisfield Police Department has received several anonymous tips from individuals concerning what occurred and why it occurred. At this time, no one has come forward to help identify the shooter in this incident.


After the incident the Crisfield Police Department increased patrols and brought additional officers in to the area.
