A 15-year-old boy was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Thursday after Anne Arundel County police say he was struck by gunfire at a playground in Severn.

Police responded just before 1 p.m. to reports of a shooting at the 8100 block of Meade Village Circle. Police learned that a group, identified as four Black males, began shooting from a dark SUV in the direction of the playground. Someone on the playground returned fire and fled the scene, police said.

Detectives recovered multiple shell casings from the scene and several buildings were damaged by gunfire, police said.

Western District detectives are investigating the incident, which they are calling a targeted incident and not a random act of violence and ask anyone with information on either shooting suspect to contact 410-222-6155.

Callers wishing to remain anonymous are asked to call the Anne Arundel County Police Tip Line at 410-222-4700.
