Charges Dismissed Against Attempted Murder Defendant

Charges against a 34-year-old attempted homicide defendant were dismissed on Nov. 23 after the prosecution faced some communication issues with those involved in the case. 

Joshua Johns, a Baltimore resident, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, felony use of a firearm in a violent crime, firearm possession with a felony conviction, having a loaded handgun on his person, having a handgun on his person, discharging firearms, having a handgun 100 yards of the public, and illegal possession of ammunition. 

On Tuesday, the prosecution informed Judge Melissa M. Phinn that she had some communication issues and moved to dismiss the charges against Johns. 

The prosecution did not discuss who was involved in the communication issues 

The dismissal was granted by Judge Phinn.
