ANNAPOLIS, Md. Aug 9 2018
Annapolis police arrested two teenagers after a private security guard was injured Tuesday in the crossfire of a shooting, police said.
Police said officers were called around 9 p.m. to the 1700 block of Forest Drive on a report of a shooting in the parking lot outside a grocery store.
Officers found a security guard with a graze wound to his chest from a bullet. He was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, police said.
"He was grazed by the bullet, it didn't strike him straight-on. So he suffered injuries to his chest," Annapolis Cpl. Amy Miguez said. "This was a man working in uniform. It could have just as easily been a police officer out there, and for no regard to his safety, this young man targeted him and shot him."
Police said Nelson Poston, 15, of Annapolis, and Kareem Davis, 17, of Washington, were arrested Wednesday and charged as adults with attempted first-degree murder and other related charges.
Police said detectives believe the suspects were together when they encountered a group of males and Poston took out a handgun and shot at them. It is not clear whether Davis or the other group had weapons, police said.
