GRASONVILLE, Md.- Authorities say three men were injured after a gunman opened fire on them at a barbecue in Grasonville.

Lt. Dale L. Patrick of the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened around 8 p.m. in front of an abandoned trailer on the 400 block of Grasonville Cemetery Road.

Patrick said a small group of people were in front of the trailer having a barbecue when an unknown male suspect walked up to them and fired several rounds from a shotgun.

According to Patrick, three people, including a 31-year-old Grasonville man, a 24-year-old Grasonville man and a 27-year-old Stevensville man, were injured by the gunfire.

The three victims were first treated at Queen Anne's Emergency Room, which is located a short distance away from the scene. Two of the victims were then flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore, with the third being transported there later by ambulance.

Detectives assisted by Maryland State Police Aviation, crime scene techs and K-9 units remained on the scene for several hours working the scene and attempting to develop a suspect. 

Patrick noted that on Friday morning police presence was increased in the Grasonville area and a school resource deputy has been assigned to the nearby elementary school.

The motive for the shooting has still not been determined. The suspect was an unknown male with no further description at this time, Patrick said.

Police are continuing their investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the Queen Anne County Sheriff's Office at (410) 758-0770.
