Fatal Shooting In Steven's Forest

It's the county's second homicide of the year. Not a lot of detail is available yet; this from the Sun:

Officers in the Oakland Mills area heard gunshots at about 2:50 a.m. and responded to the 5800 block of Stevens Forest Road, where they found a man who had been shot in the parking lot of the Stevens Forest Apartments, said Howard County police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn.

The man, identified as 23-year-old Jason Batts of Painted Yellow Gate in Columbia, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, Llewellyn said.
