In recent weeks, Havre de Grace police have fielded multiple calls for gunshots heard in the city, recovered a small caliber handgun, and dealt with an uncooperative gunshot wound victim, but police are unsure if the uptick in gunplay represents anything out of the ordinary for this time of year.
On June 22 just before 1 a.m., Havre de Grace police received a call that someone had heard gunshots in the 300 block of South Adams Street. Shortly thereafter police received a call to respond to Harford Memorial Hospital to investigate a gunshot wound.
At the hospital, police met a man who initially provided the officer with an incorrect name and address. The victim was eventually identified as Sean Sconion, 19, who has no fixed address. During two interviews Sconion did not provide much pertinent information to police regarding who might be responsible for the shooting. Sconion was treated and released by 5 a.m. the same day, according to Maj. John Van Gilder of the Havre de Grace Police Department.
Van Gilder also said there have been a few reports of gunshots being fired recently and that police had also recovered a very small caliber handgun two weeks ago near Otsego Street.
