Leonard was taken to an area hospital for injuries after the incident, was released from the hospital and was being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center in Towson as of May 28.

He is eligible for a bail hearing at a time still to be determined, said Baltimore County Police Department Spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton.

"At this point he has four (charges), attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, possession of a firearm with a previous felony conviction and use of a firearm during a felony or violent crime," Batton said.

Linton is an employee of DePaola's Bar and Grill in the 1400 block of Sulphur Spring Road in Arbutus, according to police.

"The victim was working security and was attempting to escort him (Leonard) out," Batton said.

Batton said Linton was shot outside the bar.

Linton retreated into the bar and Leonard followed him, continuing to fire, according to police.

According to a police press release, bar patrons calmed and held Leonard until police arrived.

Leonard was intoxicated at the time, according to the release.

Both Linton and Leonard were transported to area hospitals for treatment of their injuries.

Linton's condition was not known as of Tuesday May 28.

"What will happen is the case is then referred to the state's attorney's office and they will choose to add on additional charges," Batton said. "They review the case and determine if additional charges need to be placed."
