| September 26, 2016, 08:50 AM | 0 Comments

gunbarrelSaturday night at 930pm, Annapolis Police Department officers responded to Clay Street for a report of a male armed with a handgun in the area. 

When officers arrived several males fled on foot from them. 

One of the males that fled kept his right hand in his right side pant pocket while running away, he was later identified as Najee Stewart, 16, of Annapolis.  Officers ran after Stewart believing him to be carrying a handgun.  Stewart dropped a loaded handgun while running and then stopped running and was arrested by officers. 

Another officer, still in a police car, saw a different male subject running with his right hand in the front pocket of his hooded sweatshirt.  That subject was later identified as Jaylin King, 16, of Annapolis.  The officer believed King might also be carrying a handgun.  King fled from the officer in the police car.  The officer caught up to King and exited the vehicle as King stumbled and fell.  King removed a loaded handgun from his sweatshirt pocket, dropped it on the ground, and was arrested. 

This handgun was stolen in a burglary in the 1000 block of Timber Creek Ct that occurred in March of 2016. 

Both Stewart and King were charged as adults.  Stewart was charged with handgun on person and possession of a firearm by a minor.  He was released after posting $7,500 bond.  King was charged with handgun on person, possession of a firearm by a minor, possession of a stolen firearm, burglary, and theft.  King is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on $40,000 bond.
