Multiple shootings were reported since February 24 in Maryland, and the police investigated to find out if they were connected.
35 year old Hong Young, of Beltsville, was arrested near Arundel Mills mall, the location of the first shooting on February 24. Then, a man who was driving away from a gas station was injured by pieces of glass shot out from his car.
Since then, shots were fired on a truck on a busy highway, close to a movie theatre and even on the NSA building. The fact that the events happened in a 12 miles radius in the Baltimore-Washington area and considering that all the shootings were signaled in less than a week gave the authorities reasons to believe the crimes have the same author.
The police took Young into custody on Tuesday night. He was uncovered by his 1999 Lincoln Town Car, that was parked in a closed store`s parking lot near the Arundel Mills mall. Also, the car was sighted at the places of the other shootings.
The cops pulled Hong Young over near the mall. They said they saw evidence that incriminated him, linking Young to the NSA shooting and the other shootings. T.J. Smith, who is in the position of Anne Arundel County police spokesman, declined to say what the evidence was.
After the first shooting, there were shots fired Monday, close to a Walmart in Laurel and outside the AMC movie theatre at a Mall in Columbia.
Young is said to have fired on a truck passing on the Inter-County Connector in Prince George`s County on Tuesday. There was a victim, injured by pieces of glass breaking from his vehicle. He was taken to a hospital, treated and released. The authorities found a bullet fragment on the clothes of another person in the victim`s vehicle. Also on Tuesday, the NSA reported a shooting at one of its buildings, the Fort Meade Army installation.
“The investigation referenced is ongoing. No injuries to NSA personnel have been reported.”
said spokesman Ian Brennan. He refused to give any further comments.
