On July 13 around 9:30 a.m. police responded to the 8500 block of Glen Michael Lane, 21133 for a call of a domestic fight where shots were fired. The suspect fled the location and the victim left the scene to go to the hospital prior to police arrival.

The preliminary investigation determined that the victim argued with his wife, whom he is separated from, her family and her boyfriend. The argument led to a fight which resulted in the boyfriend shooting the victim  in the lower body.

Detectives arrested Taivon Walker (24) of the 6700 block of Iron Ore, 21075 and charged him with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, use of a firearm to commit a crime of violence and a handgun in a vehicle.
