The man wanted in connection with a shooting outside a bar in Gwynn Oak has been arrested and charged with attempted murder, police said.

The Baltimore County Police Department reported last month that it was looking for 21-year-old Ashani John Salmon, the suspect in a June 16 shooting outside Pejus Restaurant and Lounge in the 1700 block of Woodlawn Drive.

Police said Wednesday that Salmon, of the 1500 block of Penrose Avenue in Baltimore, was being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

He was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault and use of a firearm to commit a felony.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled in Baltimore County District Court on July 25.
