Davis is currently being held without bond at the Carroll County Detention Center. The investigation is ongoing; anyone with information is urged to contact the Maryland State Police.


Increase in Gun Violence in Maryland

The incident involving Davis is just one of many recent cases of gun violence in Maryland. According to data from the Gun Violence Archive, there have been 1,105 incidents of gun violence in Maryland so far this year, resulting in 388 deaths and 717 injuries.

Advocates for gun control are calling for stricter laws to regulate the state’s sale and possession of firearms. Maryland already has some of the most stringent gun laws in the country, including a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and a requirement for background checks on all gun sales.

However, critics argue that these laws are not enough to prevent gun violence and that more needs to be done to address the root causes of the problem, such as poverty, mental health issues, and a lack of access to education and job opportunities.

The issue of gun violence is likely to remain a hotly debated topic in Maryland and across the country as lawmakers and advocates continue to push for solutions to this pressing public health crisis.
