March 08, 1994

A 17-year-old Churchton youth was being held without bond at the county jail after being charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a 32-year-old Edgewater man.

Roger Dewey Brown was charged as an adult in connection with the shooting that occurred about 9:40 p.m. Friday.

According to police reports, a gunman ambushed Earl Spencer Lucas in the 300 block of Center St. and shot him four times in the arm and leg. Mr. Lucas ran into an apartment, where residents called police.

Mr. Lucas was treated at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and released.

The shooting may have stemmed from a previous argument, police said.
