Baltimore County Police have charged Officer Timothy Kennedy, a 27-year veteran of the agency, with one count of failing to secure a firearm to prevent access by a minor.

On October 11, Officer Kennedy's 11-year-old son was able to obtain his father's service weapon after he set it down on an armoire in his bedroom when he arrived home from work. His son discharged the weapon, and the bullet struck the door. There were no injuries from this incident. Officer Kennedy's wife reported the incident to the department the following day and a criminal investigation was started.

The case was referred to the State's Attorney's Office for review. Detectives applied for a criminal summons on October 25.

Chief Emphasizes Gun Safety Priority

"This Department has spent much time and effort advocating for gun owners to handle their weapons safely and responsibly, especially when it comes to keeping guns out of the hands of children," said Police Chief James Johnson. "We do not hesitate to enforce gun safety laws, and, as this unfortunate case shows, that includes cases involving our own officers."

Police Powers Suspended

Officer Kennedy's police powers were suspended when the department was notified of this incident. He will remain suspended pending the results of the criminal case. Per policy, the internal investigation will be completed at the conclusion of the criminal process.

Baltimore County detectives continue to investigate the double shooting that occurred on October 2 at 4:40 p.m. in the 2100 block of Southorn Road, 21220. The victims have been identified as Brandon James Jewell, 27 years old, and Charley William Jewell, 66 years old, both of the 2100 block of Southorn Road, 21220.

Both victims are expected to survive their injuries.

Reward Offered

Police cannot confirm suspect information at this time and continue to seek the public's assistance with any additional information.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587). To text a message to Metro Crime Stoppers, send to "CRIMES" (274637), then enter the message starting with "MCS," or e-mail a tip to www.metrocrimestoppers.org.
