Two 17-year-old boys were arrested yesterday and charged as adults with first-degree murder in connection with two separate Baltimore shootings this summer, homicide detectives said.

Marcel Terry Smith, of no fixed address, was arrested about 7:20 p.m. as he was sitting on a bench outside the main U.S. Post Office in the 900 block of E. Fayette St., police said.

The Smith youth was being sought on a warrant charging him with murder and a handgun violation in the July 23 shooting of Antoinette Louise Wilson, 24, of the 2100 block of Callow Ave.

Homicide detectives said they think the slaying may have occurred during a robbery attempt.

Ms. Wilson was found lying in the street in the 1600 block of Bakbury Court. Police said somebody had punched her in the face, pulled out a semiautomatic pistol and shot her shortly before midnight.

In an unrelated arrest of another 17-year-old, Michael Corey Williams, of the 2200 block of E. North Ave., was arrested about 4 p.m. yesterday in the 4700 block of Park Heights Ave. after a Northwestern District officer recognized him as being wanted, police said.

The Williams youth is charged in the Aug. 19 death of Patrick Stewart, 39, of the 4800 block of Park Heights Ave., police said. Mr. Stewart was shot during an argument in a vacant northwest apartment where officers found several packets of suspected narcotics, police said.
