Two arrested in connection with shooting of 6-year-old boy in Rosedale

ROSEDALE, MD—Two arrests have been made in connection with the shooting of a 6-year-old boy in Rosedale on Sunday morning.

At around 7 a.m., officers responded to the unit block of Capella Court (21237) after the boy sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his lower body as he slept in his bed.

Detectives determined that the gunshot came from the townhouse next door when a woman fired a handgun into the wall while attempting to unload the weapon, which belonged to her boyfriend.

Deyonna Nykeima Charles, 29, of the unit block of Capella Court, has been charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and discharging a firearm in a metropolitan area. She was released on her own recognizance following a bail review hearing on Tuesday.

Corey Jarard Nash, 28, of the 2300-block of Jefferson Street (21205), has been charged with possessing a firearm after a felony conviction, illegal possession of a regulated firearm, and illegal possession of ammunition.

He remains held without bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
