55-year-old Maryland resident Daniel Brian Blackwell has been charged with attempted first degree murder, assault and reckless endangerment after rounding up a collection of guns and ammo, shooting at least four times through the kitchen floor of his home and engaging in a several hours long standoff with police. Why? Because his wife took a bite out of his grilled cheese sandwich. Why else would you do something like that?
Police say Daniel Brian Blackwell, 55, fired multiple rounds through his basement floor after he became angry when his wife took a bite out of his grilled cheese sandwich.
Detectives say the 55-year-old fired his gun at her through the basement floor while she was making dinner. When his wife went to check on him she found Blackwell surrounded by guns and ammunition.
“Soon after, the wife heard three more gunshots, the projectiles of which came through the kitchen floor near where she was standing,” Baltimore County Police said in a press release.
At that point she called police and got herself and the kids the hell out of there, thankfully before anyone was injured.
In addition to the charges, Blackwell was scheduled to be evaluated in hopes of figuring out what set him off. Whatever it was may not be a one time thing, as he was already prohibited from owning guns due to previous assault convictions.
