Police say that a prior business dispute between Goodwyn and the adult male victim led to the shooting on Easter Sunday. Goodwyn drove up to the apartments where the man and woman were outside playing with his children and began shooting from the vehicle, then got out of the vehicle and continued shooting as the family took shelter in an apartment. Goodwyn then got back into his vehicle and fled. The man, his girlfriend, and his 5-year-old son all suffered non life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Goodwyn is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on denied bail status.
