Lawyer is shot in attempted robbery outside his home

A Baltimore lawyer was shot in an attempted robbery Monday evening as he was returning home from his job as deputy solicitor general in the Maryland Attorney General’s office.

Lawyer William Brockman is recovering at home after being discharged from the hospital, the Baltimore Sun reports. His wife, Erika Brockman, told the newspaper her husband was walking from his car to the house at about 9:30 p.m. on Monday when two men tried to grab his bag and shot him in the abdomen.

“I think he was taken by surprise and he didn’t fully understand what was happening,” she told the Sun.

The men fled without taking anything. No arrests have been made, she said.
