Police were investigating a shooting in the Bannister neighborhood in Waldorf on Thursday afternoon.

Diane Richardson, spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, said preliminary reports indicate that at 3 p.m., a group of five people inside a vehicle on Wingate Place had an altercation.

Richardson said one man was shot in the upper body. The victim was able to get to the 2800 block of Lyon Place in Waldorf, where police and medical personnel responded.

Police arrested three suspects, Richardson said. Police released no further information on the suspects.

The victim was transported by helicopter to a hospital.

Richardson said she was told the victim was in and out of consciousness.

“At this point, it does not appear that this was a random act, and we are following additional leads,” she said.
