From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
Harford County Sheriff’s Office Detectives are seeking information regarding a non-fatal shooting that occurred late Friday night.
At approximately 10:17 pm, deputies assigned to the Southern Precinct of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 400 block of Gateshead Court for the report of an assault. Upon arrival, deputies located two victims, Ruben Coyoy, 39, and Jacinto Alverez Marraquin, 35, both of Edgewood. The victims were suffering from gunshot wounds, Coyoy in the lower body, and Alvarez Marroquin in the upper torso. Medics from the Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company treated the victims at the scene, and they were subsequently transported by ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital Bayview Medical Center where they are in serious, but stable condition.
The scene was secured by patrol deputies and the investigation was assumed by investigators from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division. Detectives assigned to the Forensic Services Unit processed the scene for evidence. Preliminary information gathered at the scene indicates the victims were sitting outside a residence in that block when two unidentified black males approached them. The victims attempted to reenter the residence, when one shot was fired. The single bullet struck both victims. The suspects immediately fled the scene.
The investigation remains active and ongoing. There are no further details being released at this time. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Detective Chris Maddox at 410-409-3551. Those who wish to remain anonymous may report their information through the methods listed below.
