BALTIMORE -- A 32-year-old man died and a suspect was arrested for a shooting inside the Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Timonium Saturday evening, according to Baltimore County Police.

Quinton Walker, 30, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Marcus Whitehead. Walker is being held in the Baltimore County Detention Center without bond.

Officers responded around 7 p.m. to the trampoline park where a man was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a local hospital where later died from his injuries, county police said. 

Police said there is no threat to the community and the investigation remains active.

Everyone who was present, including young children, during the shooting has been reunited with their families, police said.

"Who would bring a gun and why would they bring a gun you know if it's something where kids play at? I don't understand that," said Cecelia Griffin, who works nearby.

The gunshot victim and the shooter appeared to know each other, police said.

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski described the shooting as "shocking" and "horrifying" in a social media post. 

"We are thankful that no children were injured in this shameful act of cowardice," he said. "I thank the @BaltCoPolice for their swift response and for quickly detaining a suspect in this case."

The Baltimore County Violent Crime Unit will be investigating the shooting.

Police said anyone who has information about what shooting should contact 911.
