LEXINGTON PARK, Md. — We are receiving reports this evening of a shooting that occurred in Lexington Park.

At approximately 9:18 p.m. on February 10, first responders were called to the 21000 block of Enterprise Road for reports of a shooting.

Upon arrival, police located a male victim who was identified with a gunshot wound to his upper body/shoulder area.

After being evaluated by EMS on the scene, the patient was determined to be in need of a flyout to a nearby trauma center. First responders alerted the Maryland State Police Aviation, and set a planned landing zone for Lancaster Park. That landing zone would be changed to Nicolette Park soon after.

Trooper 6 is set to make the transport, and is currently on its way from the Easton Airport and is expected to arrive in 23 minutes.

We do not currently have any details about what led to the possible shooting. Midway Drive is reported to be closed at this time, with caution tape currently set up in the area of Great Mills Road.

This is a developing story. We will continue to provide additional details as they are made available.

  1. Another day. Another shooting in SOMD. Those bad guns. It’s not the criminals using the guns. Nope. You know the persuasion. Thanks joe. Unity. Safety. United States of Somalia. Nice work sir.

  2. Lexington Park is the butthole of Southern Maryland. Clearly, anyone with the ability to make any sort of positive impact from any elected or authoritative position couldn’t care any less. Southern Maryland used to be a great place to raise a family. Now its becoming more like South Southeast DC. Also, people weren’t afraid to take an a** whoopin back then. Now all of these little sissies go straight to get their gun anytime they feel their undeserved entitlement comes into question or they see a pair of shoes they like. It isn’t just the little punk kids either. Even older societal rejects are killing people for the most asinine reasons. Just spitballin here, but I’m willing to be that ATLEAST 1/4 of the families inhabiting Pegg road or Shang ri la possess an illegal firearm in their home. I say separate the base and it’s soldiers from the cancer, relocate them to a place that cares more about the safety of its soldiers than it does about aircraft museums and their curators and let the cancer kill itself. As someone who fought overseas for the freedoms that we all take for granted, seeing good hearted genuine people live in the most impoverished environments and were still able to keep a smile on their face, lend the shirt off their back without question and to work from sun up to sundown, I can’t help but to believe that we’ve put ourselves in this position. I’ll always fight for the United States I believe in and for good genuine people to raise their children in. But to the spoiled, entitled, spineless, careless, worthless, lazy, stimulus expecting, gun toting pansies who keep this site busy, I say keep up the good work. You’ll eventually work yourselves out of the equation.

  3. This is funny:
    “We do not currently have any details about what led to the possible shooting.”
    There are, usually, only 2 things that contribute to shootings in the 2 hoods…
    I suggest that Not So Great Mills and Lexington Park get their own police department like LaPlata has and keep cruisers on the streets…

  4. Seems a lot of trouble in Lexington Park. A police Officer once told me 80% of St Mary’s crime is in Lexington Park. I wonder why that is ?
