On Nov. 17, a 25-year-old Baltimore man charged with attempted murder had his case nolle pros before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Christopher L. Panos.

Omar Brown was charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, three counts of second-degree assault, use of a firearm in a felony violent crime, carrying a handgun on his person, and having a loaded handgun in a vehicle in connection to a crime on June. 24. 

The prosecutor proceeded to enter a nolle pros due to the lack of witnesses available to testify in the case. The evidence was limited, and the case would require witnesses, stated the prosecutor. 

Defense counsel Matthew Frailing had previously motioned to suppress evidence against the defendant.

Judge Panos accepted the prosecutor’s request and noted the defendant and counsel should file for an expungement of the indictment. He said this would help the defendant maintain job opportunities.
