Update from Major Dombroski on incident involving discharged firearm around 2 am on 1000 block of S. Charles Street:
As of 11:07am: The handgun that was recovered by SD Police (9MM Ekol Volga) was consistent with what is known as a “blank gun”. A “blank gun” is a firearm that does not shoot a projectile, however it makes a loud sound or bang like a normal firearm. The Major believes this is the probable (he stressed probable) scenario, however he will not be able to confirm until ballistics testing is completed, which could take up to 3 weeks.
Victim was 25 AA Male. Suspects were a 24 AA Male and 26 AA Male. One suspect has an record of about 5 or 6 charges, the other may have one previous charge. It appears that all three involved had ties to NW Baltimore.
