Woman fatally shot in Essex

An unidentified woman was found fatally shot in an Essex apartment early Wednesday morning, according to Baltimore County police.

Officers first responded to an apartment building in the 900 block of Garden Drive about 5:30 a.m. for a report of multiple gunshots in the building, according to Cpl. Cathy Batton, a police spokeswoman.

There, they found a woman with multiple gunshot wounds, Batton said. The woman, who was the only person in the apartment when police arrived, was pronounced dead at the scene, Batton said.

Police had not identified the woman, identified a suspect or made any arrests in the shooting as of late Wednesday, Batton said. An autopsy will be conducted Thursday, she said.
