September 24, 1990|By Alisa Samuels | Alisa Samuels,Evening Sun Staff

Police are searching for a 26-year-old Baltimore woman who allegedly telephoned an acquaintance and arranged to meet her on the street, then fatally shot her in the chest with a handgun.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for Marie Beverly, whose last known address was in the 1200 block of E. Belvedere Ave., charging her with first-degree murder and handgun violations in connection with the fatal shooting Saturday of Ada Williams, 28.

About 1:20 a.m. Saturday, police said, Beverly allegedly called Williams, of the 1800 block of N. Collington Ave., and asked that they meet around the corner from Williams' home at Lafayette and Collington avenues.

Detective Marvin Sydnor said an assailant "produced a handgun and shot her [Williams] once in the chest and ran from the scene."

Witnesses told police the assailant jumped into a white car that was double-parked down the street.

Williams was taken by ambulance to the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore, where she was pronounced dead at 1:55 a.m., police said.

Police said they have no motive in the shooting.

They believe the women had been friends.
