Two Baltimore men were charged Thursday with multiple counts of attempted first-degree murder and assault in connection with a shooting that took place the previous evening in Dundalk and prompted a lengthy car chase through the city and parts of Baltimore County.
The two men charged were identified as Charles Gregory Robinson, 33, of the 4500 block of Pimlico Road in Park Heights, who was also charged with using a handgun in a felony, and Quincy Alford, 31, of the 3300 block of W. Forest Park Ave. in the city’s Ashburton neighborhood.
The shooting took place about 8:20 p.m. Wednesday in the 100 block of Lee Lawrence Court in Dundalk, where county police found three people suffering from gunshot wounds. Two boys, ages 14 and 15, were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital in East Baltimore for treatment of their wounds, while a 31-year-old woman was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. None had injuries that appeared to be life-threatening.
A statement from Baltimore County police said the shooting may have been connected to a fight earlier in the day at Dundalk Middle School.
Officers who were summoned to the scene of the shooting saw a Chevrolet Camaro that matched a description of the suspects’ vehicle and attempted to stop it. The resulting pursuit involved police cars from both the city and county, and ended at Northern Parkway and Reisterstown Road when the Camaro crashed into a city patrol car and both suspects were arrested.
A Baltimore police lieutenant was struck by a car at the scene and injured. A city police spokesman said Thursday the lieutenant remained hospitalized but was “going to be OK.”
Anthony Guglielmi, the spokesman, said the lieutenant was assigned to the patrol division and was manning a traffic detail at that intersection when he was hit, although it was unclear whether it was by a police car or the suspects’ vehicle.
“I don’t know that level of detail,” Guglielmi said, adding that a preliminary incident report from the accident investigation unit had not been finished.
