UPDATE (April 9, 2019 1:03 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police have identified the two 15-year-old suspects that assaulted and seriously injured two men and a juvenile with a knife Sunday night in Windsor Mill.

Jermaine Isaiah Foster (15) and Jordan Tyrone Foster (15), both of the 2500 block of Elesmere Drive, 21244 have been charged as adults with two counts each of Attempted First Degree Homicide and three counts each of First Degree Assault. Both are being held by Baltimore County Corrections on denied bail status pending bail review hearings.

Original Release (April 8, 2019 4 p.m.):

Two teenage boys are being charged as adults following a triple stabbing in Windsor Mill last night.

The boys, both 15 years old, were arrested shortly after midnight following a physical fight with three neighbors in which at least one of the suspects pulled out knife and stabbed the victims. Police were called to the 2500 block of Elesmere Drive, 21244 around 7:45 p.m. for the fight, which left an 18-year-old man suffering from life-threatening wounds to the upper body, a 40-year-old man suffering non-life threatening wounds to the upper body, and a 14-year-old boy suffering a cut to the upper body when he tried to break up the fight.

The fight began when the victims confronted the suspects and were attacked by the two teenage boys. The 14-year-old boy had sought help from the victims after a verbal exchange with the two teenage boys at a nearby playground.

Both of the adult victims were transported to an area hospital following the fight. The juvenile was treated for his cuts at the scene.

The two teens fled the scene prior to arrival of police but were identified as the suspects and arrested a few hours later. They now face being charged as adults in the assault. Those charges are presently pending.

A thorough investigation led Baltimore County Police to quickly identify the suspect in a shooting in the 500 block of Main Street in Dundalk Sunday evening.

Although police have received varying accounts of the events, they believe the suspect knocked on the victim's rear door around 7 p.m. and entered the home. The suspect and victim engaged in a verbal altercation that escalated when the suspect pulled out a gun and struck the victim in the head, causing the firearm to discharge into a wall of the home. The victim retrieved his own firearm, firing multiple rounds at the suspect, who fled on foot through the rear door.

The victim, a 27-year-old man, was transported to an area hospital with a minor injury to his head and released.

A short time later police were notified of a shooting victim that responded to a hospital in Baltimore City with multiple gunshot wounds. This person was ultimately identified as the suspect in the Main Street shooting by the primary responding officer and detectives from the Dundalk Precinct Investigative Services Team. An arrest warrant was obtained, pending the suspect's release from medical care. The identity of this suspect will be released following formal charging.

A shooting in the unit block of Solar Circle left one man injured this evening.

Police received the call for shots fired around 7:42 p.m. When they arrived in the area they found an adult male suffering a gunshot wound to the leg. He was treated at the scene and transported to an area hospital. He is expected to survive his injury.

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting but have preliminary information that the victim and suspect may have been engaged in a verbal argument precipitating the shooting. The suspect fled the area before police were called.

The Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit will continue the investigation into this incident. Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to contact police by calling 410-307-2020.
