Medics with the Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company took over emergency care and transported Youngquist to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.
Information gathered at the time of the incident indicated Youngquist was working in the area as a food delivery driver when he was shot in an apparent robbery.
