PARKVILLE, Md. - A couple was arrested for firing off several rounds near a Department of Juvenile Services building in Baltimore County, according to Maryland State Police.
Baltimore residents Jermaine A. Conway, 39, and his girlfriend Mia C. Henson, 29, were charged with a host of firearms offenses. A man getting off of work Thursday night in the 9700 block of Harford Road told Maryland State Police what kind of car the two were sitting in when he saw shots fired in the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School.
Arriving troopers met Andre D. Boyd, 37, of Baltimore, Md., who said he had been walking to the parking lot from the school at the conclusion of his shift, along with Henson and other employees. Boyd stated he saw a Honda Accord parked near the entrance of the school grounds and then saw several flashes and heard numerous sounds similar to gunfire coming from the car. Following the apparent shots, the vehicle left the area.
Investigators were unsure of a motive although a preliminary investigation suggests a domestic incident between the suspects and Boyd.
Troopers obtained a warrant and searched Henson’s home and car. The weapon has not been found, although several shell casings were found on the ground near where the car was parked.
There were no injuries.
Conway was charged with:
First and second degree assault, reckless endangerment, reckless endangerment-discharging a handgun from a vehicle, wearing/carrying a handgun in a vehicle, wearing/carrying a handgun on person, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, restricted firearm in a crime of violence, possession of a firearm after a felony drug conviction, illegal possession of a regulated firearm, illegal possession of ammunition, and possession of a dangerous weapon on school property
Henson was charged with:
Conspiracy to commit first degree assault, conspiracy to commit second degree assault, and conspiracy to commit reckless endangerment.
The investigation revealed the Henson drove Conway.
