Updated 6/19, 11:15 p.m.

Howard County police are investigating the Tuesday night shooting of a teenager in Ellicott City.

According to police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn, a neighbor found the victim, a 15-year-old male from Baltimore County, in a field on the 11400 block of Frederick Road.

Police would not identify the teenager, who was flown to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center and was listed in "critical but stable" condition as of about 11:15 Tuesday night, Llewellyn said.

Police do not believe that the gunshot was self-inflicted, Llewellyn said.

Detectives from Howard County and other jurisdictions are "investigating the possibility of foul play," Llewellyn said.

Wow, this the second person who lives in Baltimore or Baltimore county found shot along Frederick Road within the past few weeks! The first one was a woman who unfortunately was found dead near Frederick and River Roads. What is going on here?

The problem is people want to believe that Howard County is this safe and wonderful place to live and in many ways it is. Columbia has the second highest section 8 housing behind Baltimore City in the State and with that you are and will have problems. Also with true Howard County unemployment being over 10% vacant houses on the rise you have even more problems. So until we the people that live in County fix the problems and hide from them we will continue to have problems.

The county has become overdeveloped and overcrowded due to cheap in-fill development. Despite Ulman's supposed dedication to the environment - DPZ has no problem approving even more massive development in environmentally sensitive areas like College Avenue. Many residents here now seem to have little respect for their surroundings and their community, each other - vandalism, trash, grafitti, and now murder is on the rise. Perhaps patch can address this with the police and with Ulman in an interview. I'd like to know what our elected officials and public servants' plan is for getting Ellicott City back on track and protecting us from violent crime. And, what is the status of the investigation into the young woman's murder on River Road?
