Rockville police charge man allegedly seen waving gun in residential neighborhood

Kunal Bagga

Rockville police have identified and charged an alleged gun-wielding man who led them to issue a shelter-in-place order to residents of the Rose Hill Falls and Great Falls Road area Tuesday night. The man is a resident of that area. Kunal Bagga, 37, of the 100 block of Autumn Wind Way, was arrested and charged with three counts of first- and second-degree assault. Police say Bagga was cooperative, and was taken into custody without incident.

The incident began when a resident of Rose Petal Way called police at 9:30 PM that evening, and reported that a man carrying a handgun was in her backyard. Rockville and Montgomery County officers converged on the area. Rockville police then issued a shelter-in-place order for the neighborhood "out of an abundance of caution," the department said.
