Man charged with attempted murder in Baltimore carjacking case

A 19-year-old man was charged with attempted first-degree murder this week after police say he attempted to shoot a man in a carjacking in Baltimore.

Police said on June 28, a suspect opened the side door of a van that had turned on to the 3600 block of Dolfield Ave. in Northwest Baltimore's Dolfield neighborhood and pointed a gun at the driver. The gun, however, became stuck in the van's door and the suspect was unable to fire, police said.

The driver of the van ran away and the suspect, whom police identified as Darnell Gwynn, of Gwynn Oak, drove the van several blocks before firing at a group of people in the 3600 block of Fernhill Ave., police said. No one was struck by gunfire.

Gwynn was charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, assault, carjacking, and a host of related charges this week after police say his fingerprints were found inside the van. He was held without bail at the city jail and no attorney was listed for him in court records.
