Police in Baltimore are looking for this 26-year-old for attempted first-degree murder in a particularly heinous alleged crime. Gerald Gaffney is accused of firing at a 90-year-old woman after she scolded him for throwing chicken bones on the ground. It appears that littering may not be the only offense that Gaffney is comfortable with.
If police are correct, this was a premeditated crime. After the elderly lady told Gaffney to threw his litter in a trash can, he allegedly started to argue with her and another woman before leaving the area. He then returned with a handgun and opened fire. Both the 90-year-old and a 56-year-old man were hit by gunfire.
Police are seeking him. He is described as 6-foot-4-inches tall and weighs 250 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He is also inclined to littering.
What is interesting about this type of case is the aggravating circumstance. Anyone willing to shoot an elderly lady for scolding him is obviously an imminent and lasting threat to society.
