A Parkville man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after he allegedly shot a man who was trying to break up a domestic incident Sunday afternoon, Baltimore County Police announced Monday.
James Thomas Blue, 59, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and using a firearm in a felony, police said.
Police responded to Blue’s home in the 100 block of Walnut Avenue at 3:47 p.m. March 29 for the reported shooting, according to a news release.
The woman arrived at Blue’s home to collect her property after she and Blue ended their relationship, police said. The two were involved in a physical altercation in the house when another unidentified man tried to intercede, police said.
Blue allegedly shot the man in the lower body, police said. Blue was tackled and disarmed by other people inside the home, who held him until officers arrived, police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach said.
