BALTIMORE —  Police found 15 firearms — four of them loaded — in the Dundalk row home where a man barricaded himself after an argument with his wife over a grilled cheese sandwich.

The suspect, Daniel Brian Blackwell, 55, of the 7100 block of E. Baltimore St., 21224, is not legally allowed to own guns because of prior assault convictions.

As a result of his actions last night, he has been charged with attempted first- and second- degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and various firearms violations. His booking photo is posted to the left.

Barricade

Police were dispatched to an end-of-group row home in the 7100 block of E. Baltimore St. at 4:48 p.m. for a domestic disturbance involving a gun.

The suspect’s wife told first-arriving officers her husband had shot at her through the basement floor after he became angry when she took a bite out of his grilled cheese sandwich.

She said the first shot was fired as she was in the kitchen making dinner. At that point, she went down to the basement to check on her husband, found him surrounded by guns and ammunition and went back upstairs. Blackwell briefly came upstairs, but retreated to the basement again. Soon after, the wife heard three more gunshots, the projectiles of which came through the kitchen floor near where she was standing. She and three teenagers fled the house and met waiting police officers.

BCoPD Tactical, K-9 and Hostage Negotiation teams responded. Blackwell engaged them in a standoff that lasted about three hours. The standoff ended when the suspect — who was wearing a holster of ammunition around his waist but was not carrying a weapon at the time — stepped out on the porch, allowing officers to use less lethal means (pepper balls) to subdue him and bring him into custody.

Police later found a loaded, lever-action long gun with a chambered round placed just inside the front door.

Blackwell was taken immediately to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Currently, he remains in police custody in a hospital pending an emergency evaluation.

Body camera footage from this incident is part of an ongoing investigation.
