Police arrested a 27-year-old man carrying a rifle in a duffle bag onto the Community College of Baltimore County’s campus in Owings Mills earlier this week.

Kenneth Kendall Sharp, 27, of the unit block of Jolie Court, is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on charges of first- and second-degree assault, possession of a firearm on school property, and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony or violent crime, police said.

Police officers arrived at the community college around 7:10 p.m. Wednesday to resolve a classroom altercation between Sharp, and a 20-year-old man from Randallstown. Sharp left the classroom before police arrived. He had threatened to shoot the Randallstown man in the parking lot. Sharp was then apprehended returning into the building with a rifle in a duffle bag.
