Baltimore County Police on Sunday charged a Cockeysville man with attempted first-degree murder after the man opened fire early Sunday morning outside Charles Village
Pub in Towson
Police said Francis Minsung Kang, 26 of the unit block of Brook Farm Court in Cockeysville, fired five shots into a crowd outside the popular Towson bar just after closing time.
According to a county police statement, officers on regular late-night patrol in Towson heard gunshots at 2:05 a.m. and stopped a truck they saw fleeing the scene.
After further investigation, police determined that Kang and at least two other people were involved in an altercation outside Charles Village Pub, and Kang threw a Gatorade bottle at a woman while leaving the bar.
Police said a fight ensued, at which point Kang fired five shots with a handgun—one of which hit a man in the hand and caused what police called “a minor gunshot wound.”
The man’s condition is unkown, police said.
Kang has also been charged of first-degree assault and use of a handgun while committing a felony, and is being held without bail at Baltimore County Detention Center.
