Two shot at Waldorf gas station -- Gazette.Net


The Charles County Sheriff's Office made an arrest in connection with a shooting that took place Friday evening at the Westlake Dash-In.

At 8:30 p.m. Aug. 23, officers went to the Dash-In convenience store on Smallwood Drive West in Waldorf after someone called to report a shooting.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Diane Richardson said that two Toyota Camrys pulled up to the gas pumps and witnesses said that people from both vehicles began to argue.

Richardson said Monday that based on descriptions of the words exchanged, it did not appear to be a heated argument, “not to the extent you would expect this type of violence.”

She said that the victim went to visit with other people at the gas station and the driver of the other Camry, later identified as Cor Maury Bobo-Fitzgerald, got in his car, drove toward the victim and fired a gun.

The victim was shot in the leg, and a passerby, headed into the store, was shot in the arm.

Bobo-Fitzgerald drove off, and Richardson said the victim left the scene, too.

She said the person shot in the arm was flown to Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Richardson said that later that night, the victim shot in the leg showed up at the University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center in La Plata. His injuries were not life-threatening.

Richardson said that both shooting victims are in their 20s.

Through their investigation, officers learned that Bobo-Fitzgerald and the victim knew each other.

Bobo-Fitzgerald turned himself in at the District 3 sheriff's office in Waldorf, where he was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and use of a firearm. He is being held at the county jail on $1 million bail.
