shotsfiredOn Friday night at 740pm, officers from the Annapolis Police Department responded to the 1300  lock of Tyler Avenue for a report of shots fired.  When they arrived an adult female victim reported that she and her boyfriend, Cecil Wiggins, 48, of Annapolis, had been arguing most of the day. 

Wiggins left the victim’s home and when he returned he began kicking the front door to get inside.  The victim was outside the home and fled to the rear door to get into the home.  Wiggins confronted her at the rear door with a handgun.  With the help of her juvenile son, the victim got inside the home while Wiggins was also trying to enter. 

The victim was trying to close the rear door, when Wiggins fired a shot through the gap in the door.  The round struck the ceiling of the kitchen.  Wiggins fled the area before officers arrived, but was located and arrested.  The gun was also recovered. 

Wiggins was charged with two counts of first degree assault, second degree assault, first degree burglary, two counts of reckless endangerment, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and handgun on person.  Wiggins is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on $150,000 bond.
