Man injured in Aberdeen
Shortly before 11 pm on Wednesday, August 24, 2011, Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a 911 call in the 200 block of Mayberry Drive in Aberdeen, MD. The caller indicated that there was an injured male bleeding profusely from his head.
Upon arrival, deputies located the victim, Patrick Pollard, age 31 of Ozone Park, New York. Early reports indicated he had been shot in the head. Pollard was treated at the scene by Aberdeen Volunteer Fire Department and flown by Maryland State Police Trooper 1 to the University of Maryland R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. As of 1:30 am, he was listed in stable condition.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the gun shot grazed Pollard’s head during an altercation with three to five unidentified black males. As of 3:30 am, investigative updates have indicated that the victim, Pollard, was perhaps pistol whipped as opposed to being shot as originally reported. Nevertheless, he suffered a head injury in last night’s altercation that required transportation to Shock Trauma.
