On January 21st, 2016 an indictment was handed down on the Defendant (Christian Charles Shenk) for: Attempted Second Degree Murder, Assault-First Degree, Firearm Use/Felony/ Violent Crime and Reckless Endangerment on the victim Bruce Howard, a process server in Prince Georges County Maryland. Trial was held in the Circuit Court For Carroll County Maryland on January 18th, 2017, where Sherk was found guilty of Reckless Endangerment and given 5 years in jail. The judge suspended 4 years and 6 month of that sentence, and Shenk ended up serving 6 months in jail with 5 years of supervised probation when he is was released in July, 2017.
What so ironic about this case is that Shenk actually fired his weapon several times striking Howard's white Ford Crown Victoria, which looked like a police car. As an experienced weapons expert, I find it extremely difficult to draw a weapon on another human being, but to pull the trigger makes this person a threat to all.
