(Feb. 23, 2018) Monique Douglas, 28, was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center after suffering a minor injury to her stomach during a shooting incident at the Pocomoke City American Legion headquarters early Sunday morning.

According to Lt. Ed Schreier, Sheriff’s Office public information officer, Douglas’ injury was caused by a bullet, but the shot did not penetrate her skin.

Douglas was reportedly sitting in her vehicle in the front parking lot of the American Legion, at 2017 Bypass Road, at the time of the incident.

Police responded to the scene on reports of shots fired around 1 a.m. Sunday morning. State police crime technicians recovered “numerous” shell casings at the scene, according to Schreier. Police believe multiple shots were fired during the incident.

Schreier said the incident is still under investigation.

Investigators ask anyone with information about the shooting to contact the Worcester Bureau of Investigation at 410-632-1111 or Lower Eastern Shore Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776. Callers may remain anonymous.
