and this is how rumors get started.
Not seeing anything on Facebook or news feeds.
Still no news of a shooting at Wies, but this may have been what all the commotion was about
On Thursday, June 20, 2019, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office detectives developed information that two suspects in recent shootings on Ronald Drive in Lexington Park and Mojave Drive in Great Mills and an armed robbery in Lexington Park were in possession of firearms. The suspects were approached in Lexington Park, and a foot chase ensued. One of the suspects fled to the area of St. Mary’s Square and ran through the Weis Market. Both suspects were eventually caught, and two BB guns were recovered.

The suspect vehicle in the shooting cases was located on Route 235 and a traffic stop was initiated. The vehicle refused to stop, and a vehicle pursuit ensued. The suspect vehicle was then involved in a collision on Great Mills Road with other vehicles and the occupants fled. There were no reported injuries in the collision. The suspect driver of the vehicle was caught a short distance from the collision and placed into custody. The suspect vehicle was discovered to be reported stolen from Bowie.
