Argument between friends ends in shooting

A Glen Burnie man was shot in the leg Friday night after getting into a fight with a friend while watching television.

Police said Michael Anthony Ridenour, 29, asked Jeffrey Allen Passero, 33, of the 200 block of Baltimore Ave. to leave his home in the 400 block of Lincoln Ave. in Glen Burnie about 7 p.m. The two got into a fight and Mr. Ridenour threw his friend out the door and into a hallway of the apartment complex, police said.

Mr. Ridenour then allegedly left and got a .22-caliber revolver and confronted Mr. Passero.

After again asking Mr. Passero to leave, Mr. Ridenour told police, his friend made a sudden move toward him. One round was fired from the gun, hitting Mr. Passero in the right leg, police said.

Mr. Passero was taken by ambulance to North Arundel Hospital, where he remained hospitalized yesterday.

Mr. Ridenour was charged with using a firearm in the commission of a felony and maiming by shooting.
