Md. man arrested after handgun display turns violent, police say
A 37-year-old Gaithersburg man remained in Montgomery County jail Tuesday after police say he showed another man a handgun over the weekend, got into an argument with the man and tried to kill him.
"Alcohol was a factor," said Cpl. Dan Friz, a police spokesman.
The 20-year-old victim was shot at least once in the altercation, which occurred about 5 a.m. Sunday at the Washingtonian Towers in the 9700 block of Fields Road in Gaithersburg. His condition wasn't immediately available Tuesday morning.
Arrested in connection with the case was Don Paul Wyatt, who was charged with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault. He was being held without bond, a jail official said.
