Pair Arrested for Attempted Murder After Pregnancy Test Dispute Leads to Shooting at Salisbury Walmart

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say an argument over a pregnancy test at the Salisbury Walmart led to the arrests of two men on attempted murder and related charges. 

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to shots being fired at around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday in the parking lot of the Salisbury Walmart, followed by someone screaming. 

The sheriff's office said that a deputy within the area observed a vehicle that matched the description of a potential suspect seen leaving the area. 

When the deputy turned around on the vehicle, the driver began driving erratically and sped up, according to investigators. The sheriff's office said the two people inside the vehicle, Brian Bouyer a 31-year-old of Salisbury, and Stephen Carey, 32, of Eden, stopped and got out of the vehicle and attempted to walk away.

The deputy was able to detain both of the suspects and began investigating. During the investigation, the deputy found a revolver, and two bags of marijuana were found nearby, and it was determined that they were tossed from the vehicle as it fled, according to the sheriff's office. 

Police say the deputy was able to identify that the revolver had two spent rounds, and four live ones.

It was later figured out by police that Carey drove Bouyer and a woman to the Walmart so that she could get a pregnancy test.

Investigators say it was later determined that an argument started, the woman was pushed to the ground, and Bouyer fired two shots, but no one was hit. 

Boyer and Carey were each initially charged with second-degree murder, first-degree assault, handgun in vehicle and reckless endangerment. 

Authorities said that after the deputy learned Bouyer had made previous threats to kill the woman earlier in the evening over the possible pregnancy, Bouyer and Carey were also charged with attempted first-degree murder. 

Following their initial appearances, both Boyer and Carey were ordered held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.
