From the Aberdeen Police Department:
On Saturday, February 27, 2016 at approximately 11:40 PM, officers engaged in community patrol heard the distinct sound of gunfire ringing out in the communities around the CSX tracks dividing Baltimore and Edmund Streets. Over the past two (2) weeks six (6) complaints of “shots fired” have been investigated in the same vicinity.
Aberdeen Police Officers converged on the area. Officer Nelson and Officer Giganti located four people walking in the roadway on Baltimore Street. After a brief investigation and a subsequent pat down of Cyres Rose, 22, of Aberdeen one AR-15 Assault Rifle was seized. Rose had secreted the rifle down his pants leg.
Police believe the rounds were fired in the middle of Baltimore Street in a southerly direction. No injury or property damage has been reported at this time.
After his arrest Rose suffered a medical emergency for a pre-existing condition and was transported to Harford Memorial Hospital for treatment. Charges for Reckless Endangerment and Discharging a Firearm in Aberdeen City Limits are pending.
