Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

Two men were shot dur­ing an early-morn­ing fight in Fed­eral Hill, Bal­ti­more po­lice said Sun­day. Around 2 a.m., po­lice re­sponded to the first block of E. Cross St., where they found two men shot. Po­lice ar­rested 24-year-old Steven Perkins of An­napo­lis and charged him with sev­eral counts of at­tempted mur­der, as­sault, and var­i­ous hand­gun re­lated of­fenses. A lawyer for Perkins could not be found in on­line court records. Po­lice said Perkins was in­volved in an ar­gu­ment with a group of peo­ple in the block when he pulled out a hand­gun and fired at them. He missed the group he was ar­gu­ing with and struck two passers-by. One man was shot in the foot, and the other was grazed by a bul­let, po­lice said. Both were taken to hos­pi­tals, and their con­di­tions were not im­me­di­ately known. Bal­ti­more po­lice don’t iden­tify the vic­tims of non­fa­tal shoot­ings. Sev­eral wit­nesses iden­ti­fied Perkins to of­fi­cers as the shooter, and he was taken into cus­tody. Po­lice also re­cov­ered a hand­gun.
