BALTIMORE -- Baltimore County detectives are investigating a shooting in the parking lot of a Woodlawn shopping center that sent multiple people to the hospital on Saturday morning. 

Officers responding to a disturbance at the 1800 block of Woodlawn Drive around 4:05 a.m. found that five people had been shot. 

At least one person was pronounced dead. The other gunshot victims were taken to local hospitals, police said. All of the gunshot vicitms were adults, according to authorities.

Investigators appeared to focus on a white sedan with shattered windows that was parked at the shopping center.

"I believe the white vehicle was what the victims were actually sitting in at the time of the shooting," Baltimore County Police Det. Trae Corbin said.

A local business owner said the shooting was not a surprise.

"This area is becoming worse," he said.   

Anyone with information about the deadly shooting or the person(s) responsible should contact Baltimore County homicide detectives at 410-307-2020.

"They're working with local businesses to get all the surveillance footage that's available that may have captured this incident and the suspects responsible for this," Corbin said.   

A reward will be offered to anyone who can assist detectives.
