After an argument with the alleged shooter and a local property owner, Christopher E. Kinne, 43, of Lancaster, PA, was shot Tuesday morning in a wooded area in the 300 block of Stablers Church Road in northern Baltimore County.

"Kinne was trespassing on the property, owned by an acquaintance of the shooter," according to a release. "The shooter and the property owner confronted Kinne about whether Kinne had the right to be on the property."

Kinne was shot at some point during the argument, the release stated.

All three men were hunting in the wooded area near Stablers Church Road. Kinne was armed with a shotgun, although it was not loaded at the time that he was shot, according to Baltimore County police spokeswoman Elise Armacost.

Police have not yet identified the alleged shooter, who is a resident of Harford County. He is expected to be charged with first- and second-degree assault.

Kinne was transported to York (PA) Hospital's Trauma Center with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
