“When the officers arrived on the scene they found three people suffering from gunshot wounds,” Joy Stewart, Baltimore County Police Director of Public Affairs, said. “This appears to be an isolated incident that was the result of a domestic-related argument.”
According to charging documents obtained by WJZ, Clark got into an argument with Faltz when she and other members of her family left for dinner without him.
Clark allegedly started calling Faltz continually, prompting her to ask him to leave the home, according to charging documents.
When she and other members of the family returned, Clark was still there. Faltz’s son, Herbert, went inside the home and started yelling at Clark, and that’s when witnesses started hearing gunshots, according to officials.
Neighbors said they were shocked to hear about the shooting.
“Things like this don’t happen around here,” a local resident told WJZ.
Clark is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on a no-bail status pending a bail review hearing.
