24-year old Steven Perkins of Annapolis has been charged with attempted murder according to police.

Baltimore City Police were called to East Cross Street, around 2:00 a.m., where they found one male victim, a 24 year-old man who had been shot in the foot, and a second victim, a 23 year-old man suffering from a graze wound.

According to police, both victims were unintended targets and were shot following a dispute the suspect had with another group of people who he intended to shoot.

Both victims were transported to area hospitals.

In a written statement to the media, investigators say they believe Perkins was involved in a verbal dispute that ended with him firing a gun at the people he was arguing with. None of those individuals were struck.

Police were able to identify Perkins with the help of several witnesses and after attempting to run from the scene, Perkins was taken into custody and a handgun was recovered.

Perkins was transported to the Central Booking Intake Facility. He is being charged with several counts of attempted murder, assault, and various handgun related charges according to Maryland’s Case Search.

Both victims, so far unidentified, are expected to survive.
