Wait, I believe Levy CT and Point Pleasant are in the 21060 zip code, which makes that Glen Burnie and not Pasadena? Was the alleged shooter from Brooklyn or Brooklyn Park? Again, two different areas with two different zip codes. Brooklyn is in the Baltimore City limits and Brooklyn Park, Anne Arundel County.
