Baltimore County Police have identified the suspect charged in connection with the incident at Dulaney High School yesterday where two students were struck by pellets from a BB gun.

Update (May 16):

Baltimore County Police are looking for persons who may be victims of crimes involving Vincent Davis Jr.
On May 2, police charged 43-year-old Vincent Davis Jr. of the 1400 block of Taylor Avenue in Parkville in connection with 10 burglaries in the Towson area. Many of the burglary victims were female Towson University students. Investigators believe that he was targeting young females as his victims.
As part of their investigation, detectives served a search and seizure warrant on Vincent Davis Jr.‘s Parkville home. Among the evidence recovered were personal items belonging to the female victims. The amount of property recovered is leading investigators to believe that some of the property is from unidentified or unreported incidents. Investigators believe that the time frame for the incidents may stretch as far back as 2010.
Vincent Davis Jr. has also been charged with a sex offense that occurred in the 1200 block of Taylor Avenue in 2013. In that incident, the investigation indicated that he forced a woman into the woods and sexually assaulted her. The victim in that case was able to break free from him and run.
Vincent Davis Jr. is a registered sex offender.
Detectives are looking to identify additional victims of burglary, theft, or sexual offenses involving Vincent Davis Jr.
