ROSEDALE, Md. (WJZ) — Two arrests are made in the shooting of a six-year-old boy in Rosedale on Sunday.

Officers responded to the unit block of Capella Court at around 7 a.m. Sunday morning when the boy suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his lower body as he slept in his bed.

Detectives learned the gunshot came from townhome next door when a woman fired a handgun into the wall while attempting to unload the weapon, which belonged to her boyfriend.

Deyonna Nykeima Charles, 29, is charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm in a metropolitan area. She was released on her own recognizance after a bail hearing Tuesday.

Corey Jarard Nash, 28, is charged with possessing a firearm after a felony conviction, illegal possession of a regulated firearm and illegal possession of ammunition. He is being held without bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

    Take note of that- Criminal illegally in possession of a firearm. The young boy who was shot is very lucky but I hope the County puts Nash away for a long time. This is what happens when leniency is given to every criminal. What do you think he was going to do with that illegal firearm eventually? Someone was going to die. It’s a shame this young boy got hurt, but he may have saved someone else’s life. I hope the young boy recovers quickly and completely.
