Two more arrested in wake of thefts, killing at gun shop

September 16, 1991

Two more suspects have been arrested in the robbery last week of a Belair Road gun shop, in which the owner was killed and a customer critically wounded.

On Saturday morning, Charles Ray Randolph Jr., 22, of the 500 block of Gold St., was picked up by Baltimore police. Lawrence Bell Jr., 38, of the 2300 block of Druid Hill Ave., walked into Central District police headquarters at 12:30 a.m. yesterday and surrendered, police said.

Both men, charged with murder, attempted murder, robbery and other charges, were held without bail, pending a bail review hearing scheduled today.

Of the eight men police have been seeking in connection with the holdup of the Northeast Gun Shop, at 4921 Belair Road, two remain at large. Police identified them as Kevin Brown, 18, of 5900 block of Radecke Ave., and another man whom police know only as "Ida," with no information on his full name, age or address.

Charles E. Scheuerman, 53, was killed in the robbery Wednesday. Michael Berman, 42, of Columbia, was shot in the back. More than 40 guns were stolen from the shop, police said, and many have not been recovered, although four suspects were arrested the day of the holdup.
