A Towson man was arrested Dec. 5, and charged with first- and second-degree assault, disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment after waving a cocked shotgun around during an argument.

Alexander R. Carr, 19, of the 300 block of Donnybrook Lane, was arrested last Thursday after waving a shotgun around during an argument, according to police records.


The adult male victim approached Carr when the victim saw Carr in his vehicle. The victim asked Carr about a prior incident, and Carr became upset and went to his apartment and returned with a shotgun, according to police documents. Carr pumped the shotgun and began waving it around and the victim fled, according to police documents.

Police spokeswoman Natalie Litofksy said the victim called police after fleeing, and police arrested Carr when they saw him walking around his apartment complex. Once in police custody, Litofsky said Carr told police about the argument and about his shotgun. Police retrieved the shotgun and one box of ammunition as evidence, Litofsky said.

Carr does not have an attorney listed in online court records and is out on a posted $5,000 bond.
