Police Nab Suspect in Glen Burnie Gas Station Shooting

Glen Burnie Man Charged with Attempted Murder, Other Counts

Authorities in Anne Arundel County arrested a 39-year-old man in early October, charging him with firing twice into a car leaving a Sunoco station on Hospital Drive on September 24, according to The Baltimore Sun. Police say that evidence suggests the shooting was part of a drug deal gone bad. One person was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a result of the altercation.

According to police, information gathered from witnesses led them to a home in the 400 block of Ingram Court. When they executed a search warrant, they found evidence that tied the resident to the Glen Burnie shooting. Police also found a stolen handgun. The suspect faces multiple charges, including two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of attempted second-degree murder, two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of reckless endangerment and a charge of using a handgun during the commission of a violent crime.

Authorities say the suspect is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center in Annapolis, with a bond of $5 million in the attempted murder case and $100,000 for the firearms violation.
