Baltimore County Police responded to the Owings Mills campus of the Community College of Baltimore County at approximately 7:10 p.m. to investigate a reported classroom altercation.
Officers spoke with the victim, a 20-year-old man from Randallstown, who said a verbal altercation erupted after the suspect called the victim an obscenity after he asked the instructor a question. The verbal argument escalated with the victim and suspect pushing and punching each other.
While officers were speaking with the victim, the suspect walked into the building with a duffle bag. Officers became suspicious when the suspect attempted to discard the bag, which was later searched. A rifle, ammunition and a loaded magazine were recovered from the search. Additional ammunition was recovered from the suspect’s vehicle.
The suspect was identified as 27-year-old Kenneth Kendall Sharp of the unit block of Jolie Court. Sharp has been charged with first- and second-degree assault, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony and violent crime and possession of a firearm on school property.
Sharp is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on a no-bond status, pending a bail hearing.
