Southwest Baltimore — Ronald Timmons was convicted of two counts of first degree assault and reckless endangerment. Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Jennings prosecuted the case.
On July 25, 2016, police responded to the 2400 block of Frederick Avenue near the Westside Shopping Center on a call for a shooting at approximately 6:30 p.m. Upon arrival, police found a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. A woman was found shot in her left shoulder at a nearby business.
Witnesses to the shooting gave a description of the vehicle and police apprehended Timmons in the 2700 block of West North Avenue.
Investigators later learned that the male and female victims were walking along Frederick Avenue near the Westside Shopping Center with the female victim’s 1-year-old child. Timmons pulled up to the scene in his vehicle, exited with a gun in his hand, and began shooting. The two adults were struck, but the child escaped unharmed.
“The facts of this case are extremely disturbing,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. “The defendant showed absolutely no remorse as he opened fire on a woman and her child. I am thankful that no one was killed, and that the defendant will be held accountable for his despicable actions.”
Timmons faces 55 years in prison for his crimes. He is scheduled for sentencing on November 20, 2017.
