A 24-year-old Baltimore man who allegedly shot himself in the foot while running away from an attempted murder was denied bail on April 2, despite defense counsel’s argument for his client’s release on home detention.

Christopher Streeter is currently charged with discharging a firearm in Baltimore City as well as having a handgun on his person and having a loaded handgun on his person for a non-fatal shooting on Nov. 11, 2023.

During Tuesday’s bail review hearing, defense attorney Roland Harris told Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Anthony F. Vittoria that the prosecution’s theory alleges Streeter was the victim of an attempted murder who accidentally shot himself in the foot; however, no gun was ever recovered. Harris asked the judge to release the defendant on home detention, adding Streeter has no history of violence nor previous convictions or failures to appear for court.

The prosecutor argued Streeter is a danger to public safety as he is currently facing additional weapons and drug charges for another incident that occurred less than a month after the alleged shooting.

Judge Vittoria denied the defendant’s bail. Streeter is next scheduled to appear in reception court on June 3.
