WATCH: Video shows a convicted felon struggle for a gun after allegedly shooting a man in the chest/leg.

It happened Saturday on Mount Pisgah Lane in Adelphi, Md.

Around the :57 mark, suspect Marcus Conway tried shooting the victim in the head but the gun misfired, sources say.
Conway has a criminal history.

•July 2018 - guilty of carjacking
•Aug. 2018 - guilty of assault
•May 2022 - guilty of illegal possession of a firearm

I emailed the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office asking why Conway was out four months later. So far, no reply. ImageImageImageImage
Medics took the victim (orange shirt) to a local trauma center in critical condition.

The gunshot wound to the chest caused one of his lungs to collapse, sources tell me.

Today, a Montgomery County District Court judge ordered Conway, 24, of Hyattsville, be held without bond. Image

There is a significant police presence at the Chevy Chase, Md. home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

As of 12:15p, there were no protestors in his neighborhood.

Earlier this month, a man went to Kavanaugh's home with plans of killing the justice, prosecutors allege.
Hundreds of pro-abortion rights protesters are gathered in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Fu** you, Kavanaugh! Fu** you Alito!" are among some of the chants.

One protestor's sign reads, "Separation between vagina & state."

Another reads, "Keep SCOTUS out of my uterus."
The crowd of pro-abortion rights protestors remain strong on this late Friday afternoon.

The protestors are visibly and audibly angry, but have not engaged in any physical violence.

Earlier today, President Biden called on Americans to remain peaceful and refrain from violence.

NEW: MoCo Police, Fire and the Bomb Squad have evacuated an apartment tower in Wheaton following the report of a suspicious package that may be an explosive.

The building is called Arrive Wheaton. Two floors were initially evacuated around 6a, but now all residents are outside.
Dozens of residents are waiting in the rain for an update from officials.

"Please keep in mind we have limited information as this is a developing story, we ask that you are patient during this time," apartment management said in an email to tenants titled "Urgent, Please Read!"
The fire department says Arrive Wheaton has 486 apartments. There is a Safeway, plus a beer and wine shop on the ground floor.

Police and fire are relocating residents to the Wheaton Rec Center and Library, located about .7 miles away.

NB Georgia Avenue is blocked in the area.

NEW: Montgomery County Police has suspended its first-ever civilian assistant police chief, sources tell me.

Executive Elrich appointed Carmen Facciolo last June. The council formally confirmed him.

A department spokeswoman said she could not comment about personnel matters.
In a department-wide email, Chief Marcus Jones wrote:

“Effective immediately, all duties and authority vested in the Chief of the Community Resources Bureau are vested in Captain Marc Erme. This will remain in place until further notice.”

Jones didn’t mention Facciolo by name.
“I’ve heard sparsely anything. So, I don’t know exactly what it is. I didn’t even know that they had put out a statement or done anything concrete... So, tomorrow I’ll get a full briefing on it and we’ll find out where they are and what they think is appropriate," Elrich told me.

NEW: The Giant located at 12051 Rockville Pike in Rockville, Md. is depleted of many produce items, chicken, some bottled water, and other staples.

A few signs in the salad section read:

“Important Info: Due to supply challenge, some bagged salads are unavailable at this time.”
Here is a short walking tour of the partially-barren produce department inside the Giant on Rockville Pike.

Today, I asked Giant what’s causing the food shortages and what it’s doing to restock shelves ASAP.

A spokesperson replied to my email declining to comment for the story.
The Harris Teeter located at 11845 Old Georgetown Road in North Bethesda, Md. has a similarly-depleted produce department.

Harris Teeter’s chicken and milk were also heavily picked over.

The North Carolina-based company did not respond to my email seeking information today.

NEW: Bethany Petrie and Theodore McKenzie tell me they’ve been caring for the two surviving Prince George’s County zebras for about a month 🦓

McKenzie is the groundskeeper on a large, wooded, private property. It backs to the farm that the zebras escaped from in late August.
MORE: The first photo shows McKenzie spreading hay at 3:49 p.m. Tuesday.

The second photo shows the two zebras chowing down a little more than two hours later.

“All of a sudden, I’m in the middle of trying to save zebras. I would never in a million years think I’d be here.”
MORE: McKenzie and Petrie recently started the ‘Save the Zebras Foundation.’

They also operate a website and a Facebook Page where they post photos and topical links almost daily.

“People are starting to donate,” McKenzie told me. “Get involved. Help me help the zebras.”

NEW: @albornoz_gabe says he's moving forward with a vax mandate for MoCo's nearly 10,000 employees.

"This is a tough situation. It’s a tough call, but I always err on the side of safety,” Albornoz said.

20% of county workers remain unvaccinated or haven't reported their status.
MORE: Three public sector unions warn it's possible that hundreds of cops, firefighters, and corrections officers will resign or retire in protest.

36.12% of fire rescue, 32.25% of corrections, and 19.83% of police personnel are unvaccinated or haven't revealed their status.
MORE: Albornoz has heard the union threats but isn't wavering.

"There was grave concern in CA and NY that when the mandate was required there... that it would have catastrophic effects, there would be waves of people quitting, and that didn't happen. It didn't come to fruition.”
