Six men have pleaded guilty in the Sept. 11 killing of a Belair Road gun shop owner, who was shot in the chest while a team of nine robbers looted 43 weapons from the shop, prosecutors said. The six accepted plea agreements Monday.
At sentencing May 5, the prosecution plans to recommend penalties of life plus 50 years for each man.
Those three, Rodney D. Brown, 23, of the 1200 block of Clendenin St.; Kevin Brown, 19, of the 5900 block of Radecke Ave.; and Charles Randolph, 23, of the 500 block of Gold St. -- were identified as gunmen in the robbery, said Assistant State's Attorney Julius A. Silvestri Jr.
Police said the two Browns and Randolph led a group of robbers into Northeast Gun Shop in the 4900 block of Belair Road. The owner, Charles E. "Eddie" Scheuerman, 53, died of a gunshot wound to the chest and another man, Michael Berman, 42, was shot, but survived.
