A Parkville area teen has been arrested and charged after police said he pointed a pellet gun at an older man's head.
Jilani Shaquille Alexander, 18, of the 8100 block of Ridgetown Drive, faces first- and second-degree assault charges and one count of reckless endangerment in connection with the incident that took place on Dec. 24.
Alexander allegedly pointed a Colt Defender .177-caliber pellet gun at the head of his friend's father who then called police, according to a police report.
Police said he then tried to get rid of the gun by tossing it over a fence, but officers recovered the weapon.
A search of electronic court records shows that Alexander has been released from the Baltimore County Detention Center on a $20,000 bond.
