CRISFIELD, Md.- Police have arrested a Virginia man in connection with an early Sunday morning shooting at the Elks Pride Lodge in Crisfield that left two people injured.

Crisfield police said officers from several different agencies were outside the Elks Pride Lodge on 4th Street when several shots were fired inside the building. 

Police said 18-Year-Old Keshawn Harmon of Virginia was arrested after officers observed him leaving the building holding a handgun. Two people were shot and taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said several homes in the area were also damaged from stray bullets. 

Joyce Collins, who lives in the neighborhood with her husband James, said they were asleep when bullets started flying through their home.

"My husband and I were asleep and we got awoken by a bunch of noise outside. People screaming and hollering and gunshots, a lot of gunshots," Collins said. 

Crisfield Police Chief Michael Tabor said they are doing as much as they can to make sure the community is safe and the investigation is still ongoing. 

"What we know so far is that a DJ who was out of Virginia held the party," Tabor said. "The suspect and the victims were out of Virginia also; so it wasn't localized to anybody in this community that we're aware of, or did anybody in this community take part. Obviously, we're still investigating the incident because we believe there were other shots fired." 

James Collins said parties should not be able to continue at the lodge because every time a party is held there, some type of fight or altercation breaks out. He said he's had enough with the violence occurring in his otherwise quite neighborhood. 

"Shut that joker down! When it comes down to a bullet coming in my bedroom, coming through my window, it's time to shut it down; and you know move it out somewhere else, in the country somewhere," Collins said.

Harmon is facing multiple charges, including attempted first-degree murder and the use of a firearm in a crime of violence. Police said Harmon had no prior arrest record before this shooting. He is being held at the Somerset County Detention Center without bail.
