Gun, drugs found in car where girl was shot; driver charged
BALTIMORE (AP) — A woman who was driving the car in which a Maryland child was shot last week has been ordered held without bail on gun and drug charges.
The Baltimore Sun reports Baltimore District Judge Flynn M. Owens issued the order Monday for 33-year-old Darnell Holmes. Holmes was driving in Baltimore last Thursday with her daughter and 7-year-old Taylor Hayes in the back seat. Shots were fired, wounding Taylor. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Holmes’ daughter was not injured.
Holmes’ attorney, Staci Pipkin, says Holmes doesn’t know who shot at the car and that Taylor is the daughter of Holmes’ cousin. Holmes was charged with possessing drugs and a gun after police found a loaded pistol, heroin and a digital scale in her glove box.
