MSP arrest teen for allegedly firing handgun at a home in Salisbury

SALISBURY, Md. - Maryland State Police say a 17-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday morning in Salisbury after he allegedly fired a handgun at a residence.

Troopers from the Salisbury Barrack received a call shortly after 10:20 AM from someone who claimed their house had just been shot at by someone who got out of a red Kia Rio that stopped in front of the home.

The suspect was described as a black male and the Kia Rio reportedly had dark tinted windows and noticeable body damage to the driver's side. Troopers were able to locate a vehicle matching the description a short time after the call in the 700 block of Ebenezer Drive.

Police say they also found a juvenile male matching the suspect description near the car. He was positively identified as the shooter and arrested. He is charged with reckless endangerment, firearms access by a minor, having a handgun on his person and disorderly conduct.

Officials say this 17-year-old is a subsequent offender who is required to wear an ankle monitor. Though he was waived to adult status by the Department of Juvenile Services, his name has not been released.

Police say they are still attempting to locate the handgun used in this shooting. Anyone with information related to this investigation is asked to call the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101. Tips can be made anonymously.
