Sean Jenkins, the appellant, was convicted by a jury in the Circuit Court for Dorchester County of the attempted second degree murder of fourteen-year-old Cassandra Moul (Cassandra), the first and second degree assault of her mother, Melissa Moul (Melissa), reckless endangerment, wearing, carrying or transporting a handgun, and the use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime or felony. Jenkins was sentenced to twenty years for use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime or felony, to a consecutive thirty years for attempted second degree murder, and a consecutive but suspended twenty-five years for first degree assault. The remaining convictions were merged. Jenkins was acquitted of burglary in the first, third, and fourth degrees.

Jenkins presents two questions for our review:

“1. Did the circuit court err in denying appellant’s Motion to Suppress when he presented evidence he was intoxicated at the time he made his statements to police?

“2. Did the circuit court err in limiting appellant’s closing argument?”
