From the Baltimore Police Department: 

Detectives have charged 24-year old Steven Perkins with attempted murder.

On November 27, 2016, at approximately 2:00am, officers were called to the unit block of E. Cross Street for a report of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they found two shooting victims. The first victim is a 24-year old man who was shot in the foot. The second victim is a 23-year old man who was suffering from a graze wound. Both victims were transported to area hospitals for treatment.

Investigators believe the suspect in this shooting was involved in a verbal dispute with a group of individuals in the block. During the dispute, the suspect pulled out a handgun and fired at the people he was arguing with.

These individuals were not struck. However, two unintended victims in the block were shot.

When officers arrived on the scene, several witnesses helped identify the suspect. After attempting to run from the scene, he was taken into custody and a handgun was recovered.

The suspect is identified as 24-year old Steven Perkins from Annapolis, Maryland. Perkins was transported to the Central Booking and Intake Facility. He is charged with several counts of attempted murder, assault, and various handgun related charges.

According to Councilman Eric Costello the incident happened in front of the Pizza Bolis at 13 E. Cross St. and both injuries are non-fatal. Both victims are natives of Virginia, though one is a Federal Hill resident.
