A Baltimore man facing several weapons charges for his alleged involvement in an August 2022 non-fatal shooting received a trial date on Feb. 6 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn.

The stand-in assistant state’s attorney present during the hearing offered defendant Jordan Mosby a plea of five years for illegally possessing a regulated firearm. Mosby rejected the plea.

Judge Phinn was able to schedule the defendant for trial on March 31 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Videtta Brown.

Mosby is charged with the illegal possession of a regulated firearm, illegal possession of ammo, having a loaded handgun on his person, discharging firearms, and two cases of reckless endangerment for an incident that occurred on Aug. 30, 2022.

According to the Baltimore Police Department (BPD), Mosby was arrested almost immediately after a shooting on the 3700 block of Gwynn Oak Avenue. The defendant was initially charged with first-degree attempted murder and other handgun violations for allegedly shooting a 32-year-old male.
