A Baltimore woman accepted a plea agreement on Sept. 13 in connection with two crimes that took place on Sept. 22, 2021.

The prosecution offered a plea to the defendant and her defense attorney Angela Shelton before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Geller.

The defendant, 22, is charged with attempted first and second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of reckless endangerment, use of a firearm during a felony violent crime, having a handgun on her one person, having a handgun in a vehicle discharging a firearm, the malicious destruction of a property valuing less than $1,000 and malicious destruction of a property valuing more than $1,000.

The defendant accepted a plea of 25 years, suspending all but five years for first-degree assault, and a concurrent sentence of 25 years, suspending all but five years for using a firearm in a felony violent crime.

The defendant told the judge that she is a mental health patient who goes to a psychiatrist and takes daily depression medicine.

During the prosecution’s statement of facts, she said the defendant allegedly approached a black Volkswagen with two civilians inside, one who she had known. The defendant and the victim had gotten into an argument when the defendant opened fire on the two civilians.

A witness gave a video to the Baltimore Police Department and identified the defendant as the shooter.

A search and seizure warrant for the defendant’s house later revealed a Smith and Wesson gun, ultimately leading to her arrest.
