Catonsville man recovering after Mount Airy shooting

January 11, 1994|By Staff Report

A 19-year-old Catonsville man was in good condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center yesterday, recovering from a wound he suffered during a Mount Airy drive-by shooting Saturday night.

Brian Dehn was shot in the abdomen about 11:23 p.m. while he was in a house in the 100 block of E. Ridgeville Blvd., said Sgt. Andy Mays of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Maryland State Police barracks in Westminster.

The bullet had traveled through one of the building's walls before striking Mr. Dehn, Sergeant Mays said. He declined to say what type of gun was used in the attack.

"Our investigator left for Shock Trauma to interview him [Mr. Dehn] in detail," Sergeant Mays said yesterday afternoon. "We are trying to figure out a motive."

Yvonne Valltos, who lives with her family in the East Ridgeville dwelling, told police investigators they are preparing to move to Florida soon, Sergeant Mays said.

Ms. Valltos was unavailable for comment.

Police are seeking a full-size, red pickup truck with oversize tires and a silver roll bar on the bed, which was seen in the area at the time of the incident, Sergeant Mays said.

Anyone with information on the shooting should call Cpl. Edward Fox of the Westminster CID at 876-8989.
