A District Court judge Friday set bail at $35,000 for a man charged with assault with intent to murder in the shooting of an Annapolis man.

Charles Ford III, 19, is charged with shooting Timothy Leo Price, 28, of the 200 block of Jawal Court early Wednesday morning with what police said may have been an automatic Uzi or MAC-10 submachine gun.

Price was hit once in the chest and once in the foot; he is listed in serious but stable condition at the Shock Trauma unit of University Hospital in Baltimore.

Ford told Judge Donald M. Lowman that he lived in the 1300 block of Tyler Avenue, but prosecutors said he lived with his mother in the 1100 block of Madison Street.

The shooting occurred on Madison Street.

The charging document says Price was standing on Madison Street at about 12:10 a.m. Wednesday when Ford and three other men pulled up in a red car.

The document says the men went into Ford's apartment, came out and Ford said, "I'll be back."

The court document says Ford went back into his apartment, returned with a gun and opened fire. Police said at least 24 rounds were fired.
