EDGEWOOD, Md. - A man was shot and killed in what Harford County authorities said was a domestic related shooting, according to spokesman Edward Hopkins.
Police were dispatched to the 3100 block of Mahonia Way in Edgewood on Monday at about 8 p.m.
A 911 call was placed by the woman living at the home. She told authorities that she was assaulted by the man of the house. She suffered minor injuries: lacerations and bruises.
Hopkins was "fairly certain" the two were a couple. Police do not know if children were at home at the time of the shooting.
The woman called 911 after she reportedly shot the man, Hopkins said.
