A police officer was shot early Tuesday morning at an elementary school that is being used as a polling location in Prince George's County.
Two officers responded to a burglar alarm at Oaklands Elementary School in Laurel at about 2:30 a.m. The officers said they found a broken window and an intruder. When the officer confronted the intruder, police said the man opened fire. A bullet grazed the officer's head, but the injury is not considered life-threatening.
Election judges arrived at the school at about 5 a.m. to set up for the day's voting, but were not allowed inside the school until after 6 a.m. Polls open at 7 a.m. in Maryland.
Election workers managed to get the site opened at about 7:10 a.m. Many voters had arrived to the polling site as much as two hours early. Hundreds of voters were waiting in line when the doors opened.
The shooter remains at large.
