Suspect charged in shooting in Glen Burnie

June 14, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

A Glen Burnie man who was reportedly involved in a fight early Wednesday evening and is suspected of abducting a woman at gunpoint an hour later was arrested on charges of shooting a Reisterstown man, county police said.

Duane David Clark, 42, of the 7400 block of Furnace Branch Road was charged with assault with intent to murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony. He was being held yesterday at the county detention center on a $500,000 bond.

Larry Michael Newdecker was in serious condition yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. He was injured in the neck and buttocks.

Police do not know of a motive for the shooting. They said it happened after two other calls that day apparently involving the same men.

Shortly before 8 p.m., police were called to an apartment in the 7400 block of Furnace Branch Road regarding a fight, but when they arrived, it had broken up, according to police spokesman Sgt. Jeff Kelly.

About an hour later, police were called to Sun Valley Shopping Center in the 7900 block of Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. in Pasadena to investigate a report that a woman was being held at gunpoint by a man and forced into a car with another man. The description of the men matched that of the two reported fighting earlier, police said.

By the time offices arrived, the suspects had driven off, police said.

Shortly after 9 p.m., officers were called to the apartment on Furnace Branch Road for a shooting in front of Just Wingin' It restaurant in the same block.

Witnesses told police that they heard two shots, then saw a man and woman run from a car. The description of the man fitted that of one man in the abduction report, police said.

Officers said they found Newdecker injured and arrested a man a few blocks away, walking along Sea Grove Road.

Police are looking for the woman who was reported abducted. Anyone with information should call police at 222-8619.
