Earlier Wednesday, Baltimore County Police announced in a news release that Samuel Charles Davis, 36, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and other crimes after shooting his roommate, a 30-year-old man, in Middle River, also in the eastern part of the county.

The victim was transported to a local hospital after being shot in the lower body by Davis following an argument in the 1500 block of Aldeney Ave. just before 9 p.m. Tuesday, police said. Davis remained at the location and was arrested when officers arrived, according to the news release.

Davis is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on a no-bail status pending a bail review hearing, police added.
