BALTIMORE — A 61-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder for a New Year's Eve shooting in Baltimore.

On Dec. 31, at about 11:22 a.m., officers were walking on foot in the area of N. Eutaw Street at Mulberry Street when they heard gun shots in the area.

Officers responded to the area when they were approached by a 52-year-old man who had been shot in the stomach.

The victim was taken to an area hospital and was in serious condition at the time.

Back up officers responded and searched the area for potential witnesses and a possible suspect.

As the officers walked into the 300 block of State Street (an alley), they saw an unknown man discarding a handgun.

That suspect has been identified as 61-year-old Ronald Williamson.

Williamson has been charged with 1st and 2nd Degree Attempted Murder and is being held without bail at Central Booking.
