Man Remains Behind Bars After Missed Target At Bulletproof Vest Kills His Friend

BALTIMORE (WJZ)–A man who accidentally killed his friend while testing out a bulletproof vest will remain behind bars.

A judge denied bail for 30-year-old Mark-Anthony Sandang Ramiro. He is charged with first and second-degree murder for the shooting death of 28-year-old Darnell Mitchell.

Police say Ramiro shot was aiming for the bulletproof vest but shot Mitchell above the vest instead.

Ramiro’s defense attorney said the men were high on drugs and alcohol and made a stupid decision.

The shooting took place on 2208 Cedley Street and was filmed.
