August 16, 1994

County police officers, responding to a report of gunshots, arrested a Baltimore man in woods near Arundel Village Saturday afternoon, police said.

Officer Charles Benner went to the intersection of Wasena Avenue and Matthews Street about 2:30 p.m. to investigate a report of shots fired in the area. There he found several youths and a girl firing a Remington 12-gauge shotgun and a Taurus .357-caliber Magnum, police said.

The handgun had been stolen from the Clark Brothers Gun Shop in Warrenton, Va., police said. The youth in possession of the gun told Officer Benner he'd bought it on the street about two weeks earlier, police said.

Dominic Leone III, 18, of the 1500 block of Jackson St. was arrested and taken to the Northern District station, where he was charged with possession of a concealed deadly weapon. No charges were filed against the others.

Police search for 2 men who threatened teen

Police are searching for two men who threatened a Glen Burnie youth after an argument over a woman Friday morning.

Jose Vincente Perez Silva Jr., 17, who lives on Continental Place, told police the dispute started about 11:30 p.m. Thursday in the 6300 block of Smithy Square. The woman's boyfriend punched Mr. Silva in the eye, police said.

About an hour later, the boyfriend and a male companion drove onto the parking lot of the 7-Eleven store at Ritchie Highway and Church St., police said. Mr. Silva told police the boyfriend threatened to beat him up again, and the second man pointed a pistol at him and said, "Don't mess with my boy."

The two men then drove north on Ritchie Highway toward Baltimore, police said. Police arrived on the scene after someone activated the 7-Eleven's alarm. They searched the area but could not find the suspects.
