Councilman David Marks reported that two Republican volunteers had gun shots fired at them as they were placing election signs in Kingsville, MD on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 17.
“Neal Houk and his son Bradley Lang were fired upon while driving to their next spot as they put up election signs in Kingsville, near Mount Vista Road and Cedar Lane,” Marks said.
Neither were hurt. Lang is a member of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee and Marks reported a suspect was detained and questioned by police.
Mark said this incident was unexpectable.
“We are not used to this type of violence in our area, where Democratic and Republican elected officials tend to collaborate on local issues and respectfully disagree where there is a difference of opinion, ” Mark said in a statement.
“Freedom of expression belongs to all, and all should practice it without fear.”
