ANNAPOLIS, MD - Police said shots were fired Tuesday in Annapolis, damaging five vehicles and two houses.

Authorities said they arrested an unrelated bystander after he assaulted an officer.

Police said they were on Clay Street when they heard gunshots around 5:12 p.m. 

Authorities said they saw a suspect vehicle "turning onto Brewer Street, where multiple subjects bailed out and fled in an unknown direction."

The vehicle was reported stolen from Anne Arundel County, officers said.

Police said a large crowd formed while they were establishing a crime scene, prompting assistance from partner agencies.

Authorities said 25-year-old Corey Outlaw of Annapolis walked through the crime scene and became "very disorderly" when asked to leave.

A press release said Outlaw assaulted a police officer, who suffered an undisclosed injury. 

The Annapolis Police Department said it arrested Outlaw and charged him with:

  • Two counts of second-degree assault
  • Failure to obey a reasonable, lawful request
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Resisting and interfering with an arrest
  • Obstructing and hindering an officer

Outlaw was released on recognizance, authorities said. 

"There is no evidence that his arrest was directly related to the shooting," the press release said. 

Officers are still investigating. Detectives asked anybody with information to call (410) 260-3439.

How does someone get charged with 5 counts, 2 being second degree assault on a POLICE OFFICER, and walk out the same day on their own recognizance?? Have the legislators in Annapolis bumped the "juvenile" age up to 25? ? Won't be long before the Annapolis Police Force starts to dwindle like Baltimore City.
