Suspect Surrenders To Annapolis Police

November 23, 1990

A man wanted on attempted murder charges in the shooting of Timothy Leo Price early Wednesday turned himself in to Annapolis police later that day.

Police said that Charles Ford III, 19, of the 1100 block Madison Street, walked into the police station at 3:30 p.m., saying he had seen his name in a newspaper.

He said "that he was being sought for attempted murder and that since he was innocent and didn't know anything about the shooting, he decided to turn himself in," said Annapolis police spokesman Dermott Hickey.

Price, 28, of the 200 block Janwal Street, was shot once in the chest and once in the foot at 12:30 a.m. Wednesday by a man who police believe may have used an automatic Uzi or MAC-10 submachine gun in the attack.

Police say the man fired at least 24 rounds at Price, spraying the area with bullets. Price was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center at University Hospital in Baltimore and was listed in serious but stable condition yesterday afternoon.

Police say they still do not have a motive for the shooting. On Wednesday, Hickey said drugs were "always a possibility."

Police say that after Ford was arrested, he asked to see a lawyer and declined to make a further statement. He was charged with assault with intent to murder. The weapon has not been recovered.
