Maria- it's close to Underwood and Tilghman near the Crofton Library. That's pretty damn close to my house, just across the pond, in fact. I think I heard the ambulances, but being that there's an old folk's home on the corner of 424 and Reidel, I didn't give it another thought.

@Maria, it happened at 1615 Forest Hill Ct near Crofton Meadows Elementary School.

It is actually off of yorktown court in the culdesac at the end of forest hill court. I have to say that the police were there at 640 in full force. They were amazing in getting there in no time flat. I pray that they are going to get through this. The mother was taken out first and quickly got her in the ambulance. A few minutes after the two daughters were taken out on stretchers. They were sitting upright and were awake . They wereholding towels around their necks and a good deal of blood. During this time police had dogs searching the neighborhood. Definitely not the way I planned to wake up this morning.

It's right at the intersection of Fallsway Dr. and Tilghman Dr.
