Franklin officers intercepted a potential gunman with a known victim in mind on the Owings Mills campus of the Community College of Baltimore County last night.

Kenneth Kendall Sharp (27) of the unit block of Jolie Court, 21133 was arrested on the campus property with a firearm in his possession. He is charged with 1st and 2nd Degree Assault, Possession of a Firearm on School Property, and Use of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony/Violent Crime.

Police were initially called to the scene around 7:10 p.m. for a classroom altercation. Officers arrived quickly and found that Sharp had left the scene. The victim advised police that during the altercation Sharp told him he had a gun in his car and would shoot him in the parking lot. While officers were speaking with the victim, Sharp came back into the building carrying a duffle bag, which he attempted to discard upon seeing police. Officers detained and questioned Sharp, who admitted to having a gun in the duffle bag. Officers discovered a rifle in the bag and a loaded magazine and ammunition in Sharp's pants pocket. A search of his vehicle yielded additional ammunition.

The initial altercation between the victim, a 20-year-old Randallstown man, and Sharp began during class when the victim asked a question of the instructor and Sharp called him an obscenity. A verbal argument ensued, escalating with the two pushing each other, then punching each other. An additional instructor responded and separated the two, removing Sharp from the classroom. Sharp re-entered the classroom, pushed the victim, and was removed by a responding Public Safety officer.

Sharp is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center pending a bail review hearing tomorrow.
