Guillermo Lopez-Molina charged with shooting co-worker with nail gun
A Hyattsville man has been arrested for shooting a co-worker with a nail gun, inflicting possibly life-threatening injuries.
Police say 41-year-old Guillermo L. Lopez-Molina is charged with first degree assault, second degree assault and reckless endangerment.
Witnesses told police that Lopez-Molina got into an argument with a fellow worker while framing a house in Edgewater. Afterwards, they say Lopez-Molina shot a 34-year-old Laurel man with a nail gun.
"At some point, the victim struck the suspect on the foot with his hammer and...he (the suspect) took the nail gun...and struck the victim in the hand and upper body, " Anne Arundel police spokesman Justin Mulcahy says.
Police aren't releasing the 34-year-old Laurel victim's name.
The victim was flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore with possible life-threatening injuries to the upper body. Police say three inch framing nails were removed from the victim's chest and hand.
Lopez-Molina is being held behind bars on a $250,000 bond.
