UPDATE (December 10  4:09 p.m.):

The rumor about a person with a gun in Milford Mill Academy this morning has been determined to be a hoax.

This incident started with a rumor that had been circulating since early this morning that someone with a gun was going to shoot up the school. Just before 7:30 a.m., a 15-year-old ninth grade student that has disabilities entered the front entrance of the school and stood in the hallway for approximately 10 minutes. During this time, someone took a picture of the student. This picture then circulated via social media with the rumor that the student was the one who made the threat to shoot up the school. Another student received that information and forwarded it to a parent who called the school.

Police were able to identify the student in the picture and are interviewing him. Investigators believe that the student poses no threat to the school and the incident appears to be a rumor that got out of control.

Captain John McGann, commander of the Pikesville Precinct responded to the school to oversee the police response and investigation. He stated, “We take the safety of the students and staff at our schools very seriously. We will thoroughly investigate any possible threat.”

Update (December 10, 12:55 p.m.): Milford Mill Academy has been downgraded from a lockdown to an alert status. Definitions of alert status and lockdown are available online.

Original post:

At 11:09 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police received information that there was a gun inside of Milford Mill Academy, 3800 Washington Avenue 21244.

As a precaution, the school was placed on lockdown while police investigated the report.

The initial investigation has indicated that a parent reported that her child had received information about a threat against the school. So far, officers have not found a gun in the school and are working to identify the origin of the rumor about the threat.

Milford Mill Academy remains on lockdown.

The Pikesville Precinct commander is advising the parents to go to the Giant parking lot at 3602 Milford Mill Road where police will provide them with further information.

Update, December 3, 2014:

Two suspects have been charged in this case: Jatwan Derek Boston, 24, of the 4300 block of Parkton St., 21229; and David Orlando Grant, 32, of the 1500 block of W. Penrose St., 21214. Both are charged with attempted first degree murder, first degree assault, first degree burglary and other charges.

Original article:

A 33-year-old Catonsville man was seriously injured Saturday night, November 29, when he was shot and stabbed in an apparent home invasion robbery.

Officers responded to a home in the 300 block of Suter Road, 21228, at 10:09 p.m. The victim, suffering from a gunshot wound, told police he lived next door and had run to a neighbor's house for help.

The ongoing investigation reveals that several male suspects forced their way into the victim's home, assaulted the victim with a gun and a knife and shot him several times. The suspects stole various personal items. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.

Detectives are investigating whether this was a targeted crime.

UPDATE (November 4):

Sash Alexander Nemphos had a bail review today and he remains held without bail at the Charles H Hickey School in Parkville.

The gun that was recovered from his home was taken from his father's place of business. Further information on this will be released when it becomes available.

UPDATE (November 3 5:07 p.m.):

The 16-year-old boy charged as a juvenile after several explosive devices and a gun were found in his home on Saturday has been waived to adult status in the court system.

Sash Alexander Nemphos (16) of the 600 Block of Quiet Oaks Lane 21111 has been charged with the following:

  • Destructive device
  • Dangerous weapon on school property
  • Theft less than $100
  • Theft less than $1,000
  • Theft: $1,000 to under $10,000
  • Handgun possession

During the investigation, the suspect told the officer that he had taken the gun to the school on Friday in a backpack but he decided not to do anything until Monday.

Sash Alexander Nemphos is being held without bail in reference to this incident.

Original release (November 3 12:20 p.m.):

At 4:07 p.m. Saturday, Baltimore County Police responded to the 16900 block of York Rd, 21111, in Precinct 7/Cockeysville, for a report of multiple thefts from automobiles. Officers discovered that someone had broken into at least three vehicles.

As the result of an investigation by the Cockeysville precinct, officers identified a 16-year-old boy as the suspect responsible for the thefts from auto. When the boy was located and interviewed at his home in the Monkton area, officers learned that he had plans to go to Baltimore County Public Schools' George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson with two explosive devices and a gun, and that he wanted to kill people. The boy is a tenth grade student at the Carver Center.

Officers responded to the suspect's Monkton home, where he showed them a handgun and devices believed to be explosive. The Baltimore County Police Hazardous Devices Team responded to the home and rendered safe three explosive devices. These were crude, homemade devices made of readily available components. They also found tools and components that could be used to make additional devices.

The boy was sent for an emergency evaluation and currently is held at the Charles H. Hickey  Jr. School. He has been charged as a juvenile with several counts including possession of a destructive device, theft and a handgun violation.

""The first responding officer in this case did an exceptional job of police work, and thanks to his diligence we intervened in what could have been an extremely serious situation," said Police Chief Jim Johnson.

There is no indication at this time that any co-conspirators were involved in this incident.

BCoPD continues to work with Baltimore County Public Schools on the ongoing investigation.
