Witnesses saw two Gwynn Oak men firing guns last week

Ocean City Police have modified the charges against two Gwynn Oak men who allegedly fired guns several times in the 100 block of Wicomico Street last Thursday.

Christopher M. Thomas, 20, and Tarik R. Purcell, 18, are both charged with reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and use of a firearm in commission of a violent crime after several witnesses reported shots were fired downtown around 9 p.m.

Thomas is also charged with discharging a firearm in city limits and illegal possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, due to a previous adjudication in juvenile court. Purcell is charged with driving a vehicle with unauthorized window tinting.

Police arrested the pair in a silver Nissan Altima during what police said was a high-risk traffic stop on Baltimore Avenue near 12th Street. Several witnesses identified Thomas and Purcell as the men walking around and firing shots in the air.

Hope you boys enjoyed your 18-20 years on the outside. Why you so desperately wanted to be in the inside is beyond roughly 240 million of us? But don't let us get in your way. Bubba and Leroy are waiting with open arms!!!!!!!!!

Buh Bye!

How are all of those gun laws working out ? Don't seem to make much of a difference.

Boy are the times changing. Already this summer there have been more gun violations in Ocean City than I saw in over 25 years as a law enforcement officer there.
