The woman who police said fired off a handgun "indiscriminately" to head off an armed robbery in Bolton Hill has been released on $35,000 bail after she was charged with handgun violations and shooting on a public street. Keyna Oduyoye, 30, of Randallstown, and accompanied her boyfriend to the quiet city neighborhood to purchase a car listed on Craigslist. When they arrived, Oduyoye told police the couple was robbed. She told police she grabbed a .40 caliber Beretta from the glove compartment of her car and fired a warning shot in the air. The gunman dropped his weapon, she told police, according to court charging documents, and then she chased the man up the street firing three times in the air. Gun rights advocates say that this case is a perfect example of how restrictive gun carry permits -- the weapons was legally registered but she did not the permit needed to carry it -- need to be relaxed in Maryland.

Suspects charged with murder and those facing gun charges in Maryland can expect to be held without bond pending trial. But twice in the past six months, 18-year-old Brandon Kyle Mitchell has been arrested in shootings - one of them fatal - and was released after posting just $50,000 bail. Officials acknowledged an error was made when Mitchell was released last week on $50,000 bond on a first-degree murder charge, according to interviews and recordings of court hearings. But when prosecutors appealed the decision in hopes of having Mitchell held without bond, District Judge Askew W. Gatewood Jr. said Mitchell's good behavior while he was free showed that he could indeed be released on bond.
