Annapolis man to serve 20 years for shooting during a brawl outside Federal Hill bars

An Annapolis man received 20 years in prison for opening fire during a street brawl after the bars closed in Federal Hill in November 2016, prosecutors said.

Steven Perkins had pleaded guilty to attempted murder, assault and one gun charge in Baltimore Circuit Court, prosecutors said. He was sentenced Monday to 50 years, with 30 years suspended.

Shortly before 2 a.m. on Nov. 27, 2016, a brawl erupted near Cross Street Market in Federal Hill. Perkins pulled out a gun and opened fire, missing his target but shooting two bystanders, prosecutors said. One man was shot in the foot; another was grazed by a bullet.

Perkins then repeatedly punched a police officer in the face as he tried to get away, prosecutors said.
