Catching Up: Gunplay In Kings Contrivance

We've been away for the Labor Day holiday but thought this was worth noting. From HoCo PD:

Howard County Police have charged an 18-year-old Columbia man in the non-fatal shooting of a 15-year-old yesterday in Columbia.

Dominique Davon McDonald, of 9761 Clock Tower Lane, was charged today with attempted murder, assault, armed robbery and reckless endangerment. He is currently in the Howard County Detention Center on no bond.

Police were called to Howard County General Hospital around 10 p.m. for a report that a male teen was being treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the head. The teen, who will not be identified, told police he had been shot during a robbery in the area of Clock Tower Lane in Columbia around 1 a.m. Aug. 27. The teen fled, but did not immediately report the incident. He later called a family member who took him to the hospital.

Through investigation, detectives identified McDonald as a suspect. Police served a search warrant at McDonald’s residence early this morning and arrested him without incident. Detectives cannot release specific details about the information or evidence obtained, as the investigation is ongoing.
