KINGSVILLE, Md. — A Maryland man who fired a shotgun after an encounter with two men over political signs has been sentenced to 18 months of supervised probation.
The Baltimore Sun reports that 50-year-old Douglas Kuhn, of Kingsville, was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to second-degree assault.
Kuhn fired the gun after two men honked at him as he was putting up a “Black Lives Matter’ sign in his yard in October.
Kuhn faced charges of first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and discharging a weapon within a metropolitan district.
Under a plea agreement, all charges were dropped except for the misdemeanor second-degree assault charge.
