City police have arrested one man and are seeking another in the fatal shootings of two Baltimore County men Sunday night in the 3100 block of Woodland Ave. in Pimlico.

Alan E. Snead, 24, of the 3400 block of Virginia Ave., was arrested about 6:20 p.m. yesterday while sitting in a car in the 4700 block of Park Heights Ave.

Homicide detective Gary Dunnigan said Snead had been charged in a warrant with the murder of Antonio Henderson, 20, of the 3700 block of Village Hill Drive, Randallstown, and Isaac Durant, 25, of the first block of Woodthorne Court, Owings Mills.

Being sought on the same charges is Donald Eugene "Butt-Butt" Booze Jr., 26, of the 3100 block of Thorndale Ave., Dunnigan said.

Snead was arrested by members of the Northwestern District's plainclothes squad, who spotted him sitting in the passenger seat of the car, parked less than a block from where Henderson and Durant were slain.

After being formally charged at police headquarters, Snead was taken to the Northwestern police station, where he was held overnight without bond pending a bail review hearing today at the Wabash District Court.

Dunnigan said Henderson, who had been visiting his mother on Woodland Avenue, was approached by two men armed with handguns as he and Durant stood outside the house.

Dunnigan said Henderson, who was armed with a revolver and attempted to defend himself, was shot once in the upper chest and died instantly without firing a shot.

Durant, a friend of Henderson, also was shot in the chest, Dunnigan said. Durant died at Sinai Hospital about 30 minutes later.

Dunnigan said it appeared that Henderson was the intended target and Durant was caught in the fire.

Police said anyone having information on the whereabouts of Booze should call the homicide squad at 396-2100.
